Finally, finally the ducks have started laying again. Huge eggs, maybe to make up for lost time.
Here are a couple in an egg carton, which of course won’t close over them, with a chicken’s egg in the middle for comparison.
What a difference their eggs make to baking! For instance – those jelly cakes, substituting a chook’s egg with a duck’s egg meant 6 extra cakes per batch.
Long may they lay.
