A DUCK EGG A DAY

Muscovy Duck, an egg a day from our muscovy duck and on pancake day Throve Tuesday), pancakes made from our own duck eggs and lashing of fruit from last years, red currant blackcurrant and raspberry harvest. Muscovy ducks are native to Mexico, they large amusing clown like with nig broad bodies, wagging tails, and the males hiss rather than quack they are ducks with attiude. They live in a big rushy pen over planted with willow down on the croft. This year we have had a lot of rain through out the autumn and winter which they have enjoyed. They have large hooked  flat feet which makes me think they are tree dwellers.  We have had to clip their wings because they are alsop good flyers and master escapees, much to the consternation of Fasaig residents and visitors to Torridon Stores and Cafe last summer.  















Our duck egg provider, duck eggs are good for  use in baking.
