I wasn't sure where to post this, but I thought maybe it would fall under maintenance? It's ducks too, but since it deals with eggs, I thought chicken people could help too! Right now I have 10 adult ducks, 9 babies and more on the way. I plan on keeping a total of about 25. I have too many eggs to deal with. I am not religious enough about picking them up daily, so I can't collect them and donate them, because I don't know how long they have been there, and wouldn't want to give any one bad eggs, and also it is just one more thing to do which I don't have time for. I don't eat very many, so I end up with tons of eggs. In the winter it wasn't much of a problem, but now with the heat, if I collect them and put them in the trash, they stink to high heaven and attract flies. My can is near the front of the house, so it's not very nice when people come to the door, it gets picked up once a week, but it only takes a day or two for the smell to start. I don't want to smell it and have the flies at the barn either. I can't just toss them out on the property, I know they will get eaten, but I don't want to make my place that attractive to predators. I was wondering if something like one of the underground doggie waste "septic" systems would work....if it would contain the smell and the eggs would leach out in the ground ok. Something like that would make things a lot easier, I could just throw the eggs in there and not have to worry about anything. Stupid idea?? Any other ideas??? Thank you!
