Or scrambled. 😉
scrambled… hmm now I’m hungry. XOXO – Bacon
Only eggs, mind. None of that b-stuff. 🙂
Thank goodness for that my friend. I ❤ you. XOXO – Bacon
Is that one egg or many?
It’s actually seven eggs total. Our Cayugas generally lay eggs with the smallest hint of grey but when they start laying for the first time in the spring, the first eggs are almost black and gradually go greyer as the days go on. I think these odd eggs in summer happened because Bonnie had to go to the vet for several weeks with an infected foot. She doesn’t like to lay while she’s at the vet so (this is my guess) she stopped herself and restarted again when she got home. I learn something new about ducks almost every day! 🙂
I’m surprised that you found 11, wild ducks are very good at building their nests in hidden places.
Believe it or not, these are my domestic ducks’ eggs! The Cayuga lays a greyish egg (see longer explanation above). Duck eggs are not as colorful as some chicken eggs so it’s always exciting to find a special one like these once (or twice!) a year. 🙂
LOVE IT! Been down under a bit but coming to the surface again…I have always found it interesting the colors of eggs that you see with home grown eggs….not the store bought white!
Whole Foods carries a few more options but can’t say I’ve ever seen a Cayuga egg for sale!

Ah, technology! 🙂 No worries!!!
