Eggses, it is

Eggses, it is, originally uploaded by risabee2007.
Risa brings in three or four days' worth of eggs for processing. There are two dozen duck eggs and a dozen chicken eggs. Ten hens are laying four a day this January, and eight Khaki Campbell ducks are producing five or six. The goose and the Ancona ducks only lay in spring and a little ways into the summer, and are the most prone to broodiness. We don't use lights or daytime confinement. Tonight, though, it will fall to 18F out. We'll turn on the brood lamp in the barn and cover the birds' front door with a blanket.
