    the lemons & the ducks should be all hatching out at the end of next week.......fingers crossed
    had some clear lemons but that is probably due atleast in part to shipped eggs.

    I was in my teens the last time I helped GrandDad pump sauage, [​IMG] It wore my arms out back then! I do hope you got a modern pump and not a "armstrong" type.
    I never had Duck Sausage before, sounds good!!

    i have never made it but it seems a good use of older ducks. i will dress and de-bone 3 10 pound drakes and see how it goes. Hopefully we can share the pumping and make 12-15 pounds of edible food
