Dog Hill Ducks lay eggs!

Yesterday we caught the dogs tearing apart a large greenish egg shell.  At first we thought they might have found eggs laid last fall that had been hidden in the woods. Then Perfect, our new border collie, brought us another slightly frozen egg.  We searched around the yard for a nest we thought might have been uncovered by the melting snow but found nothing.  This morning John took a leap of faith and went out to check in the duck house and discovered these two beauties!  We all tasted them and declared them to be the most delicious eggs ever. Just look at the huge, golden yolks!  I made sure to reward the ducks with some fresh greens for their trouble.
