wild ducks

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

So we found some duck eggs and we've been watching from inside and the mom duck has not yet returned. It is supposed to get down into the 40s tonight and I'm worried thats far too cold for the eggs. I have thought about going out and just grabbing the eggs and getting them in a cardboard box and putting them under a lamp because I don't think she;s coming back. Any thoughts and advice?
