pekin duck eggs

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have 2 ducks. Female and male. My female is very protective of her eggs she recently just started laying a few weeks ago. I thought I'd leave them and see if she hatches any. She did have one out of the nest the other day but put it with the others, there's 4 eggs and today she had the eggs all lined up in a perfectly straight line, evenly spaced with one still in her"nest" why is she doing this, should I take the eggs away?

I would just watch and be amazed.  I really feel they're doing what makes sense to them….

Every morning, there are a nest full of eggs ready to take.  They are always lined up perfectly, usually in a line or a semi circle.  Except from one egg - one of my ducks lays green eggs, and the green egg is always pushed out of the nest, as far away as it can get.  I wonder if they don't like the green egg messing up their pretty nest of white eggs :idunno

 

I don't want babies right now, so I collect the eggs every morning.  If you can manage ducklings right now, sit back and see what happens!
