Somewhat offbeat sign of spring... might be more than you ever wanted to know about ducks...

My ducks started mating yesterday! They only do that when they think spring is coming (unlike chickens who are more like us humans in that department). That also means eggs are coming soon (since ducks only lay eggs from spring through fall), so I'll be able to finally stop buying eggs at the grocery store - all my chickens are geriatrics, so they've been on strike since late summer.
Anyway, happy soon-to-be spring!!!! :)
