Indi's duck eggs.

Every evening after dinner but before bed time, our Indi takes a walk through the forest to the ducks. When she arrives they are expecting her and are waiting noisily up by the fence. She feeds them their dinner, she cleans out their water, she makes sure they are all healthy and accounted for and she closes them into the area where their food and house is and out of the dam.

Early every morning before school, our Indi walks back to the ducks, she collects the eggs and lets them into the area with the dam so they can spend the day the swimming and splashing around.

Last Saturday Indi designed a label for her duck egg cartons.

And last Sunday she sold her first three half dozens.

This lady was her first ever customer. I think she was as excited as we all were.

This Saturday Indi will be setting up her duck eggs stall next to our chook egg stall at The Collingwood Children's Farm Farmers' Market. Her duck eggs are certified organic and free range and delicious.

Why don't you come and see her and try some for yourself?

Loved hearing the tale of Indi the duck keeper.
I'd so sad I won't be able to make it to the market, but maybe next time xoxo

Hooray for Indi! Good stuff.
I hope she doesn't have to look too hard to find her duck eggs, ours always lay in funny spots & we have to search every morning before we let the dogs into the paddock. Otherwise they snaffle them before we do.
Such a sweet post. I think Indi has such a beautiful, friendly face. You must look into her eyes & know that she is & will be just the most amazing lady. (In tied competition with her sisters of course. ;)
Have a great day on saturday Indi!
