I love that story Addie!! Well, without the snake part.


We also had some duck eggs given to us years ago. The shell was not only a lot bigger, but a lot harder and the yolks were such a bright color. Someone mentioned they tasted "richer" and I would agree. They were delicious!

If you put a bunch of Duck Eggs in a box and let them hatch, you'll have a box of quackers.

There is a good reason they stop laying in the winter. Do you want them to hatch in the middle of winter and then freeze to death? And most ponds of water are frozen over when they hatch. Where is mommy go to lead them to? It is very hard to swim on ice.

I was gonna say that.

That's alright though. You and I think much alike a lot of the time.

Duck eggs are a bit richer in flavor than are chicken eggs. now goose eggs are richer still, but very large.

Memories are everything, one of mine is of my Mum as a beautiful young woman lying on the lawn with a bowl of warm water helping the duckling out of the eggs.They come out like blobs of snot then 30 mins later they are fluffy golden balls.

That is defintely a memory to keep forever. What amazed me is that they are ready to start looking for food as soon as they can stand up.
