    I have a 1 year old black runner duck who has been laying for a long time, well I went into the coop to clean it and found some eggs (6) under the hutch. Some where big, like the runners and some were small but definately duck eggs. I thought maybe Daisy was laying but didn't confirm until this am. One small round one for Daisy the pekin hen and one large oval for Shadow the black runner [​IMG] [​IMG] I have to get excited since I have 40 chickens and get 2 eggs a day from them [​IMG] They are turning 5 months so hopefully they will get going soon [​IMG] Atleast I can depend on my duckies [​IMG]

    When I found the nest, I was raking so I cracked the shell on 2 of the bigger ones and both were double yokers!! I love my duckies [​IMG]
