One of our Runners died this week.
Monday morning fine, Monday afternoon she was a bit slower than the rest coming out of the pond at bed time but otherwise nothing odd. We picked up and checked her over on the off chance I thought atthe time maybe she had a sore foot or something
The following morning she was stone cold dead on top of another shell-less and smelly egg.
So now we know who was laying the odd eggs but not what had gone wrong with her
We are now down to five ducks and two drakes.
One duck is laying almost daily now but we don't know which one or even if it is actually only one
We have had Duck scrambled egg and Duck Muffins so far!
I have to say I can't tell the difference which is great as one of my boys is really fussy about anything new, for some reason I thought they would taste different :)
