The ducks have decided they no longer want to sleep in their pen at night. Now that they've had a taste of the big yard they want no parts of being in their small pen. They disappear for hours sometimes and I have no idea where they are. It used to be that I would go out to their pen every morning, feed them and gather their eggs from their nests and then let them out to roam the property. Most days I would get two eggs so our dogs each got one to eat. If the dogs want an egg now they're going to have to search for them themselves. I had hoped the ducks would at least go back to their pen in the morning to lay their eggs. Nope. Yesterday I wandered around the yard a while but never found any. Today I opened the back door and here's what I saw. You may have to click on the picture to enlarge it and find the egg.
