    Came home from vacation at the Pennsic War to find the first eggs from the ducks, yay! And mmm, mmm, delicious.

    Very hard shells, too!

    We have three Pekin ducks, one female and two male. They were passed to me from my boss's kids 4H project, and they didn't even know the sexes when I got them.

    Next year I'm getting more, all sexed ahead of time so I get mostly females.

    Oh, and I don't have a precise date on age, I got them when they were a few weeks old and had outgrown the space they had available.
