Wednesday was a "good news, bad news" kind of day. First the bad news. I lost one of my Runner drakes. I can't entirely piece together what happened but it appears that may have been injured. He passed away overnight. :(
Now for the good news. My hens are laying! We are getting approximately two duck eggs per day as of Wednesday. Although Runners are not known for being particularly broody, I've decided to leave the eggs in the nest and see what happens. The eggs are numbered and there's a chicken egg in there too. Maybe one of the Barred Rock hens will go broody? Stay tuned!
