What I've Learned About Duck Eggs

We've been raising ducks for a few years now, but it's taken us a while to get into a rhythm with them. I believe I started out with Khaki Campbell's, a hybrid that was supposed to lay a lot of eggs. We let them live on our pond, and had the daily chore of walking around the pond and looking for eggs. Sometimes, all we found were shells, sometimes we found a pile of feathers.
