Oscar Laid an Egg!
Oscar laid an egg!?Turns out Oscar is a girl. A renaming may be in order. Oscarina? Not sure that works. I think she’ll be forever Oscar to us.
Here’s her egg along with a Bantam egg (green one), Buff Orpington egg (brown one), and the beautiful Pekin duck egg. It’s such a pretty white – it’s almost?translucent. Her three sisters, Dilly, Hera, and Quackers should be laying any time now.
Our first duck egg. Another farming milestone.
