I would suggest a appropriate sized covered run. We have over 15 dogs that free range every day but they are cooped at night. It is covered so that it can stay dry. Are yous wood shavings or straw depending on the temperatures to keep their nests dry and clean.Thanks for all of the information everyone. The reason that I am asking about washing eggs is because so many people want to purchase my muscovy ducks eggs for hatching and I want to make sure that I am doing the right thing. When I collect the eggs, the eggs are so dirty. The ducks are laying eggs all over. I don't want to give customers dirty eggs, so I am not sure what to do as far as washing the eggs. What do you all think I should do as far as not having to give my customers dirty eggs for incubating? I would appreciate any advice. Thanks again everyone. You all have been so helpful.
I have found that using a damp Magic Eraser to wipe them off they get super clean. It even takes the dirt stains away. I hope this helpsQuote:
So no soaking them in water? My ducks get the eggs so darn dirty. I don't know how they do it. You almost need a brillo pad to get them clean.
