The Other Green Egg
While all the chickens I know took the winter off, the ducks have not.
And one even lays a green egg.
I don't know if this is typical of ducks but we got at least two eggs a day all winter and now we are up to three. I sell the eggs to a friend of a friend who can't eat chicken eggs. I'm really glad for that because although I do use them for baking, I can't get over how messy ducks are. You will notice that their eggs are dirty...just can't get that out of my mind...thus no boiled duck eggs for me for breakfast.
So if you want eggs all winter...and can get over the messy thing...oh and the dabbling in everyone's water...then get some laying ducks.
They are beautiful.
