Egg update

What a long time since anything has been written here. Elsa and her brothers and sister are always too busy to get round to any blogging. So here goes an update from Mum.

Organic Duck eggs have now have quite a fan base and are available from lots of different shops. We have a new flock of young ducks that are just coming into lay so we are looking for yet more outlets to supply.

The children still collect the eggs and help wash them, but we have now managed to buy a fantastic egg washing machine that uses high pressure jets to clean the eggs. This means that, unlike other companies, we only use water to wash and not chemicals.

Shutting the ducks in at night is now slightly easier with Pia the Huntaway puppy that is being trained to round up the sheep and ducks. She is still at the stage that Elsa has to out run with her, but she is learning fast.

Now i have found the password I will have to start posting some more recipes for our beautiful eggs, but to keep you going remember it only takes 6 minutes to boil a duck egg.
