Ujang, who lives in our neighboring house, takes care of the ducks. He is in charge of feeding the ducks twice a day. The food is varied, ranging from rice bran, corn, leftover of rice and vegetables as well as snails. Sometimes KAIL staffs also stop by to feed the ducks with leftover food brought from home.
Initially, ducks rarely spawn. Usually they do not lay eggs while molt. Once observed, nesting frequency likely influenced by the number, the type of feed and the quality of the happiness of the ducks. The last two months, they have started diligently laying eggs. Perhaps this is due to the snails that Ujang captured from rice fields.
Duck eggs taste delicious. The egg can be boiled, can also be fried. It could also be marinated first. The yolk is round and large. It is very savory and delicious. Eggs can also be used as a mixed for baking cake or other food preparations. Hopefully with more diligent ducks lay eggs, more people can enjoy the savory duck egg. Thanks, ducks!

In addition to the salad, kenikirs also have other functions. These plants are also often planted as an insect repellent because the smell is particular. The types of kenikir that are commonly found are the one with yellow and orange flowers. The leaves of these kenikir are not to be eaten.
How to plant kenikir is very easy. The old flowers will produce seeds. Dry seeds will fall on the ground and grow into new kenikir trees. In KAIL gardens, there are many new kenikir-growing from seeds that fall from the first kenikir tree.
