When we rounded up the birds today, Anya found two turkey eggs in the coop! These are our first turkey eggs … unfortunately, one of ’em is cracked slightly. But one isn’t, and we’re starting to save eggs to hatch!
Happy February! We got our first duck eggs yesterday — I wasn’t expecting them to be laying again so soon. Anya and I took a break after lunch to cut dried grasses for the ducks’ bedding. As we opened the coop to put in the new bedding, there were two duck eggs in the farthest, darkest corner of the coop.
The proto-ducks are in the incubator at March 13th — at 21:13. April 10th will be 28 days, so there should be tiny little ducklings.
We’ve been getting double-yolk duck eggs — some are huge!
We got our first duck egg today — there weren’t any eggs when I let them out of their coop this morning. At sunset, when I was putting them back into the coop, there was an egg laying in the back corner. Now we need a couple more so we can try a duck egg cake!
Anya made me a coconut custard for my birthday, and it was her first time successfully cracking eggs. I showed her how to do the first one, and she got the others cracked all by herself!
Our first egg! From the green queen … since that’s the only one who lays green eggs/
