    So I had my first three eggs in my duck house today! I couldn't figure out if they were from my Pekin or my Khaki Campbell's. Then I JUST walked outside and Wallace, my big fat pekin, has Olive, my little khaki, just pinned down to the ground. I couldn't even see her except her long neck stretched out flat on the ground. So I am now guessing that the eggs are from Olive the khaki. I have a pond in their coop and am just worried Wallace will drown the girls. Any suggestions on prevention? On the other hand, I am soooo exited we have our first eggs!!!

    Congratulations on the eggs! They really could be from any of the girls though, if they are all the same age.

    My pekins will be four months on the 18th and the khaki's not sure. The girl claimed that they were born in June but we have had them about a month and were totally feathered out when we got them. I am guessing they are older then the pekins. Anyway just still excited! Can't wait to cook the eggs up!
