Mrs Duck celebrated spring by laying her first egg of the year. The first of many I hope. My son sells them to the holiday cottage guests for 30p per egg - they are great for baking but I prefer our hen's eggs for my boiled egg breakfast.
Mr Duck is also affected by the arrival of spring, feeling a greater need to chase the hens off 'his' patch. He is very aggressive with them. Stewart, the cockerel, is no match for Mr Duck's temper.
