First Ancona Egg

Remember back in June last year I acquired some Ancona ducklings? Well, they are all grown up now and today one of the hens laid the first egg! Finally, it has seemed forever, especially since I rehomed my mixed breed hens last fall and have been eggless since!

First Ancona Egg of the Season
The egg weighed in at 2.5 oz not bad for a first timer. Hopefully we'll be able to hatch some Ancona ducklings here this spring and have home raised Quackers!
