I think our Mallards, Larry and Sherry may have found a little hiding spot. DH was cleaning out the asparagus patch today and found a half buried duck egg. It was filthy and freezing. Almost 3 inches long and about the same tan color as our BO poulets lay. Maybe a little lighter. The Buffs never go in that area of our property so it had to be Sherry. We got them in the spring when they were just about a week old and figured we wouldn't see an egg til next year. Like idiots...instead of getting a pic... we cracked it...(it HAD to be pretty old and the ducks only spend a short time out of their run a few times a week so Sherry couldn't have hatched it herself.) It was a double yoker, the inside of the shell had a thin while cooked egg like substance lining it. Am I wrong? Ya think one of the BO's may have may have snuck over there and laid? Or could this have been Sherry?
