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

Monday, March 07, 2011

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!!!! :)

    Hey, I'm always interested in what ducks are up to. I've been missing the throng of ducks that usually hangs out on our stretch of the Exeter River. Now I know what they're doing, the little devils!

Lucky you, having duck eggs! I think they're the best thing--so enormous and rich--even though I allow myself an egg only about once every other month or so.
