First Khaki Campbell Duck Egg has arrived!

We were very excited to find the first duck egg from the campbells. We found a couple of duck eggs laying around hte pond last week, and sure enough we are now getting a consistent 1 egg per day. this means they are of age and the number should climb steadily and quickly.  There are 120 ducks, including 8 males, so doing the math  of 3 eggs per day for every 4 birds shows :

112 females / 4 = 28  * 3 = 84 eggs = 7 dozen per day

This breed is listed to have the capacity to lay all through the winter without lighting, although at a slower rate, so we should have duck eggs available year round.

So yes.. exciting news for those waiting for a steadier supply of duck eggs! It is almost here!

As usual, these eggs will be soy free, non-gmo, omega 3 rich, pastured (with pond) organic, fertilized, and fresh! Ducks eggs tend to be a little richer than chicken eggs, and those truly allergic to chicken eggs can often consume duck eggs without a problem.  That puts duck eggs in high demand!

maybe time to start on another  new flock!?!?!
