Do not be alarmed – all is well!
Giles and Kate at Incredible Eggs South East are thrilled to welcome a new breed of duck to their farm in Kent, called Black East Indians. And yes, even their eggs are black! Their eggs will be included in some hatching kits in the South East from 2018, when available. If you are lucky enough to get some, be prepared for cuteness overload when the ducklings hatch! You have been warned! Adult birds develop an incredible beetle-green sheen on their feathers, which is absolutely stunning in the sunlight. The Black East Indian is another rare breed listed with the Rare Breed Survival Trust.
