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!


  1. Those first eggs are always a treasure!
    You mentioned wanting to write a book about your own homesteading experiences. I say go for it! If you have any questions you think I might be able to answer about the process, just ask.

  2. Your first egg, that's great. I love meeting other bloggers so I'm glad I found your blog today. I really enjoyed the visit. Have a lovely day... :)
