And Lulah found it. Amazingly she must have found it and thought it was something good, so she put it in her mouth and brought it to us, unbroken and immaculate! Soft mouth or what.
The funny thing is that yesterday afternoon one of the ducks was going off on her own. My ducks just don't do that! They're like 7 little things that move as one, so I thought Ah! She must be ready to lay. Today L and I were just setting up a nice warm nesting box in the bananas ( this is where the ducks have made their home) in the hopes that they would lay in it. But really, who knows? I've heard ducks can just lay their eggs where they drop. Daily searches of the bananas are now in order, I think.
While we were busy setting it up Lulah must have done her own search of the bananas and found just what she was looking for - good girl.
Now I've just read in Wikipedia that the shells are thicker than chicken eggs so they will last longer. Weirdly this is the total opposite of what I thought! I thought they were more porous and therefor lasted less time. Good old Wikipedia!
Now what shall I bake with it?
