Nicole, given your impressive egg consumption numbers... are you guys sticking with just ducks for egg production, or are chickens in the plan? I'm torn on this myself, I like ducks better in general. Faster to mature, no crowing, better at eating slugs... but I do find the protective aspect of a couple good roosters appealing. Egg production from chickens was definitely more reliable compared to the Muscovies that I'm used to, in large part because they were so darn good at hiding their eggs... I'll probably end up with both in the end.
...eggs are produced from chickens under artificial light at this time of year, which doesn't jive with my ethics.

So, I've been trying to eat less but it is super hard! Otherwise, when eggs are in season, I have no limit on how many eat.
