Once in awhile I get a very large duck egg, its a double yolked and I wonder if that hurt the duck coming out??
@Miss Lydia @Lacrystol I am hoping that some of the yellow ducklings are Buff's. I hope they are not all Runners.
I have a Q: Can or do ducks take eggs from other nest? I mean can they literally carry them away to their own nest? b/c my f/w runners; only one I saw was bred by my drake. And all those fertile eggs that they hatched were not their eggs. And the 2 f/w runners claimed that nesting box for themselves in the beginning? does this make sense? what Im asking is how did all those eggs get in their nest? did they let the other ducks lay eggs in it? and maybe i just missed seeing the other ducks lay eggs in the nest? I mean I only saw the f/w in the nest box, does this make sense?
just curious how that happened.
Have a great day ladies. I am getting bussier these days... my ducklings in the house (3) are REQUIRING me to clean their pool/pen EVERY DAY now!! stinky little critters....huh?
