    I have 5 Welsh Harlequin ducks who are out laying 18 hens. I've been getting 4 eggs a day from the 5 ducks and only 3 or 4 from 18 laying hens. So far this month I've gotten 76 eggs from the ducks and only 61 from the hens. [​IMG]

    I was soooo surprised to when my ducks started laying, they lay 5 to 6 eggs each a week, and I have Rouens, who are supposed to be one of the worst layers. And a plus is that a duck egg is like 2 chicken eggs so do the manth and they'll come even higher.
