More on ducks

Ducks are still laying eggs underwater. I have to wade in, pick them up then go to the field in the "back 4o " to dispose of them











But at least some of the eggs are not laid underwater. I am told by farmgirl friends as long as the "film" covering the egg is not disturbed, the egg probably can be used beause the membrane forms a seal around the egg, protecting it from bacteria.







The ducks still swim away from me when I approach them. Maybe I need some corn.
