First meat duck eggs started!

Yesterday marks the start of yet another venture at the sprouts.....  Meat ducks!  We put our first silver appleyard eggs into the incubator!  Instead of buying ducks,  we decided to follow our model of hatching our own,  so our first 4 from last year have become our permanent breeders,  and our new flock will arrive soon!

First year will be a little light,  so far we have about 40 eggs started,  collecting 4 per day for the next couple weeks.  Hopefully most are fertilized.  We will soon see.

The end result will be local,  heritage,  pasture raised,  soy free,  nongmo,  organic,  hand processed meat ducks for sale!
