Awaiting eggs!

Not sure when they will happen, but this weekend is 14 weeks for the ducks, which is the earliest we’d get anything, so we set up a nest box for them and hope they will lay on what’s left of the starter ration until we switch over to layer ration at 18 weeks or empty sack, whichever comes first.

Also, one of the ducks kept flying out, so we covered their pen with chicken wire, which is working great and is still easy to move around.  The ducks, if they are at least half girls (2/4), will be our homesteading YAY for the year, as the cost to keep them relative to their egg production for the rest of the year is more than competitive to buying locally.  Keeping them on fresh grass seems to be reducing their purchased feed consumption without affecting their growth.
