    I use a Mr. Clean magic eraser for the extra tough spots - or I just keep those for myself and ignore the dirt LOL!

    Lol. I think the trick is in finding people who appreciate duck eggs for what they are, which is NOT white and clean. My customers all understand that they are getting a high quality product that is naturally less... pristine-looking... than a chicken egg.

    Mine do use the nestboxes once they hit maturity... some of the time. But the first several months they drop them wherever and then poop all over them. They're really gross. Keep those nestboxes prepped. Also, add a golf ball--mine never ever used the boxes until I put golf balls in them, and now they use them about 60-80% of the time.

    Good luck. [​IMG]
