Hey, laughing boy: no eggs yet

Yeah, I'm a Daffy Duck fan (anyone catch the reference :-)

In the news: drakes don't lay eggs! Yup, both my ducks are showing those unmistakable signs of being male Mallards! Good luck getting eggs out of them!

The hens -- we now clearly have 5 pullets & two cockerels, one of which has started to crow, albeit quietly -- should start laying any day now. Every morning I open the coop hoping for a little brown egg and am greeted with nothing but impatient birds in a hurry to get out and start scratching for stuff.

Patience, they say, is a virtue. I ain't the virtuous type apparently :-)

I'm known as HeyLaughingBoy on a number of online forums. Shout if you see me anywhere!
