I have a scovy who is an inside duck and has been raised from the nest by myself, naturally she imprinted on me. My question is this - what is normal laying behaviour for scovies of this nature. I'm just a little concerned because her recent behaviour seems a bit odd. But she is an odd little ducka so I'm not really surprised haha.
She has been trying to mate with me for about a month now. Whenever I try to pick her up she will get into the 'mount me' position, sorry for the phrasing but I'm sure you all know what I mean. She has been sneaking around making nests everywhere for a few weeks also. So she laid an egg on the couch the other day and wasn't interested in the egg at all. 3 days later she lays another outside in a plastic storage box with some old towels in it. This time she was very protective of it. Wouldn't let us near the box without carrying on. So no eggs for 2 nights. Then another. And now she doesn't seem to care if we venture over to investigate.
So what's up? Is this normal behaviour?
