    My runner is molting so no eggs from her. I have 2 Welsh Harlequins hatched in March, and one of them is giving me an egg a day (or they are taking turns...not sure which). My 2 younger girls (hatched in June) should start laying soon. The drakes hatched at the same time are just now figuring out the "wild thing", so I should get more eggs shortly.

    Between my 3 Pekin hens, I am getting two eggs a day - they just started to lay this week - they are 5 months old.
    I am also getting 3 Magpie eggs a day and 1 Cayuga egg. Along with 1 to 4 Call Duck eggs a day.
    I expect all this to end as soon once our cold weather sets in - which will be soon here in ND.

    I have quite a few in the incubator right now and am keeping the pekin eggs and call eggs to put in the incubator - the others we are eating.

    I am incubating the pekin eggs and call duck eggs. Eating the Magpie and Cayuga eggs. They all taste like eggs to me - i couldn't tell the difference from a chicken egg.

    My 5 month old muscovies are just starting to lay. Getting about 6 eggs a day from 20 ducklets. Eating them or feeding them to the livestock. I don't want ducklings in the middle of winter.
