Hurrah, today I found a duck egg down by the pond which means I soon shall have lots of beautiful eggs. I have four ducks - Khaki Campbells and I have been waiting for them to start laying. To be honest I thought perhaps the crows were taking eggs as the girls lay outside, but perhaps not. I love duck eggs and so do my friends, but I am seriously considering selling duck and hens eggs this year ( retired now you know). Anyone know of a fair price?
Oh and they may even this year sit on eggs long enough to produce ducklings - not a one last year. Khaki Campbells are notorious for sitting for about 3 weeks and then giving up!

I love duck eggs too.
Re a fair price - not sure TBH, Danast. Our local village shop sells very nice eggs for under £1 for 6, so I am guessing £1 to £1.50
You don't want to exceed supermarket prices for organic eggs, I think. Or would people pay extra for home reared eggs? Fiona may sell them on the gateside stand too, if our flock produces enough. Our girls are close to retirement now so we are considering buying five or six who will start to produce immediately.
Never knowingly underfed
