Our first duck egg!

It’s been 20 weeks since we were given three Aylesbury ducklings and we had all but given up on them laying eggs, thinking we must have ended up with three males.

Well, we can safely say that at least one is female! Every morning I open the duck house and peer inside expecting to see nothing but straw (and duck poo) but this morning I had a pleasant surprise when I saw a lone egg sitting in the middle of the floor. Let’s hope this is the first of many.
