    I think that the ducks must have been listening in on
    Rusty's secret meetings, because I went in to the
    ducks pen to let them out and lo and behold.. an egg!

    No one was talking, so I have no idea which duck laid it.

    actually, I think that they were a little scared of it.
    Ducks are so silly!

    Now, if the chickens will follow suit today.....

    here is our first duck egg!

    not quite sure who laid it...

    will do.. it will be next week or so.

    Celeste won't get to see this egg until Sunday.
    It is the size of a store bought extra large chicken egg.

    I bet I could pass it off as a chicken egg to hubby! lol! [​IMG]

    Our Pekins are missing. A few weeks ago we had a predetor of some sort attack and kill one of the Rouen ducks. The Rouen ducks are still here, the rest of the flock anyway, but our 2 Pekins hightailed it out of here! Haven't seen them return... hope maybe they'll come back in the spring. [​IMG]

    Congrats on your egg.... hope you get many more soon!
