Different uses

First of all, the use of eggs belongs to the culinary sphere. The product is added to salads and cold soups. There are a variety of exotic dishes, including eggs from homemade musk ducks. For example, in Japan they prefer to preserve them and eat in this form. For some dishes, the product is least suitable, for example, when fried, it is inferior in taste to chicken eggs. Chicken is so popular because people are accustomed to their taste and smell, as a result, not everyone likes the taste of products received from the indochie.

In addition to salads, soups and other dishes, eggs can and should be used in the manufacture of baking. Protein has an elastic and oily structure, and the buns and pastries made from it are very tender and delicious. However, it is better not to do mayonnaise and whipped proteins, because it is important not to eat raw eggs.

Moreover, nourishing face and hair masks, conditioner can be made at home - all you need is a bit of exposure and exact adherence to the recipe. It is especially nice to use your duck eggs for cosmetic purposes.

Growing Indoor

How many eggs an indigenous girl lays depends on many factors, starting from her age and state of health, ending with the conditions in which the egg is laid. Domestic musk ducks have good egg production, and under ideal conditions they can bring up to 120 pieces per year. Ideal conditions are not common, so you need to count on 100 - this number is suitable for breeding birds at home, but too small for business.

Before laying, you need to prepare a nest. The duck prefers a cozy nest away from the hustle and bustle, safe enough for the intended offspring. The size of the nest should be medium depth.

The place for the nest should be away from moisture and drafts. For some houses, creating nests is a creative process.

An indigenous girl lays eggs every day, starting from morning to lunch. Some poultry houses try to pick up food immediately after they appear, but this is not worth it. It is better to wait until at least 20 are typed in the nest, then they can be sent for storage or left to the female, who begins to hatch them.

The problems faced by poultry houses during this period are as follows:

  1. Females in a “delicate” position are scrupulous in relation to cleanliness and tranquility. If you are going to pick up the goods, you need to proceed carefully - when there is no duck in the nest. A frightened bird may stop trotting or will not want to hatch offspring.
  2. It is important to monitor the diet and the state of health of birds, especially when the time of laying is suitable: the egg laying of the birds depends on this.
  3. An indigenous woman who saw that one should not expect hatching from some eggs, the embryo has stopped, can eat them.
  4. It is necessary to make rigorous selection, including using transillumination. Deformed eggs, from which hatching cannot occur, must be removed from under the laying hens.

Storage rules

In order not to harm the embryos or the taste of the product, you need to determine how long the storage should last. Timing depends on what the storage method will be. In any case, the eggs should be handled as delicately as possible, because they are fragile and quickly deteriorate.

  1. If you intend to use indoor products for food, they should be stored in the refrigerator. Average shelf life is 6-7 days. Raw eggs come in even stricter: for 2-3 days they should not be eaten. Anyone who eats products that have been kept in the refrigerator for longer is at risk for digestive problems.
  2. To store products for hatching will have to be completely different. Eggs will need to be taken from the nest almost immediately after their appearance, it is recommended to do this while the duck is on a walk. On the trays they are kept in a horizontal position and are occasionally turned over. The average air temperature is 10 ° C and the humidity is 80%. In the first case, with the method described above, they are stored for about 10 days. The number of days can be slightly increased by warming the eggs.

The success of hatching depends on how much time the eggs spent in storage. Their eggs, obtained from their own indole, are much tastier than bought ones, but you will have to try to get them more, however, as they say, you can’t easily pull a fish out of the pond.
