I recently had a family friend staying here for a few nights. Well-behaved, pleasant company to a point but; He showed absolutely no interest in my ducks (or chickens, for that matter)! I promise I'm not the type who goes on and on about my birds. Well, not to people who don't want to hear everything about them, but I did want to tell him the difference between runners and others, and show him the broody hen sitting on duck eggs, stuff like that. He looked towards the pen, relatively politely, and that was that! I told him I gave my duck eggs to a restaurant downtown, except for those I kept for myself. He enjoys fresh chicken eggs so I suggested he try duck eggs. Not a chance, said he, He'd rather stick with "real ones". Deep down inside I guess I'm an evil person because I made scrambled eggs the following day and I used 1/2 + 1/2. He obviously enjoyed them, gobbled them up as if there was no tomorrow. Ha ha to him! (Actually, I think I could have used pure duck egg and he wouldn't have noticed. He slathers eggs with ketchup! I remember how insulted I was the first time he did that, when I wanted to show him how different fresh eggs were from store bought ones.) But seriously, is there anyone here who could walk past a poultry pen and not spend lots of time watching them? Anyone?
