    ... or maybe one of the chickens just couldn't make it the last 10 feet to the nest box...

    I got my younger ducks mid june, so I don't think it's one of them. The appleyard trio was young but full sized when I got them two months ago, and the drake is just getting his adult color feathers, so it might be one of those... but I figured it was so late in the year that I might not get any duck eggs until spring.

    But there it was, an egg, just laying in the back yard for no particular reason. well, ducks are notorious for just laying <wherever> when they first start.

    the whole lot free-ranges so I guess it's going to be an easter egg hunt every day from now on! I'll need to get some nest boxes for their runs, but they're out by 7 in the morning when I go to work, so if they haven't layed before 7, the eggs could be anywhere...

    anyway, Duck Eggs Are The Best so YAY! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    can ya tell I'm excited? I LOVE duck eggs!

    unless, of course, it was one of the chickens...
