KC Ducks - Egg laying machines

Its midwinter, cold and dark but the Khaki Campbell ducks just keep on laying. Four ducks are giving me two dozen eggs a week twice as many eggs per bird as the hens. They do eat more of the layers pellets but the eggs are heavier than hen eggs and are excellent when soft boiled, once you get a taste for them. Four ducks should provide a family of four with all the eggs they need at minimal cost because they supplement the concentrates with worms, snails and slugs.
