    Quote:One could have layed after you collected eggs, and then again at normal time. hence once later than usual, then back at normal time.
    Why do you discard your duck eggs?
    They are very good, we eat ours, and are fabulous for baking!

    i have only an acre and they built house all around me so i dont want the ducks having anymore babys because some of the new neighbors are a pain in the bum.
    i have 13 hens so if i want an egg i take in in and uses it if i dont i can just wait a day someones bound to lay an egg. lol

    Quote:Ahh...I see...You could also collect them and sell them, especially if they are fertile eggs. Just a suggestion.

    Gosh, you could collect them and sell them even if they aren't fertile.
    And if you didn't want to sell them, I'm sure your neighbors would love free eggs!! Might get them to be a bit more tolerant of your flock...after all, you were there first! [​IMG]
