|The First Egg of the Season|
Wednesday, February 13, 2013
A sign of Spring...
Today is a day to mark on the calendar. I collected my first egg of the year! One of the gracious duck ladies decided the days are long enough and the sun is bright enough to grace the laying box with an egg. It's certainly not because this week is any warmer-it's been rather cold with nightly lows hovering around the zero mark.
The egg weighed in at 2.1 oz, a pretty average size for my duck eggs. I'll have to see if I can squeeze in some baking time this weekend-there is nothing like fresh duck eggs when baking!
