I think we've finally decided that are two Rouens are girls! Since they are our first ducks we've ever owned I'm still in the learning stage. A friend of ours who bought some Pekin ducks about the same age have now started laying so I feel ours are not too far behind. So I need to know everything there is about eggs. They are still on the starter feed currently (since the bag is so huge) called Purina Flock Raiser but I'm thinking about switching them over to Purina Layena. I'm just following the directions on the bag...18 weeks we're supposed to switch but we're a little over. It'll be good to lower the protein a little. Hopefully I'm doing this all right! I can slowly switch them over by mixing the feed right? I just don't want to upset their tummies. I've also heard that the first few eggs might come out a little odd since their system is working out kinks. About how many times do they need to lay until eggs are useable? How do I collect them? Do I just take them when I find them? Then what do I do with them? Just toss them into the fridge? lol I know I need to clean them first...any special way to do that? How long until they spoil? Anything else I need to do? Sorry for all the questions, just want to be prepared!
