On Friday a fortnight ago, we were host to Lucy and Chris from The Leader – our local newspaper. Lucy was interested to come and have a chat to us about our ducks! Always flattered and accommodating for those interested in ducks we of course welcomed our two guests with open arms.
While winter is not generally considered a great time to hatch ducklings, we’ve gone and decided to just give it a go regardless. In the post I’ll share some of our reasoning and some of our results so far.
When poultry begin laying for the first time, there can be some rather unusual eggs that are produced! Ducks are no exception – the first eggs that come from a duck can be rather odd shaped.
