Well our first foray into homesteading, having ducks for eggs, is ending in failure. Apparently, you can pick four ducks and have them all be male when they mature! What are the chances?
Although they are handsome, they do not lay eggs.
Male ducks are only good for the roasting pan. But what do you do when you have become attached to your dinner?!
I think we will try again in spring with new ducklings.
This whole endeavor is not a total failure. We have learned a lot about ducks! And we proved to ourselves that we can become homesteaders. Our kids love being duck owners, and I must confess, so do I.
