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?

Your compassion is heartening (c:
It may be what you want to do and at the same time, let's look ahead a bit ... wild ducklings - very challenging to raise and their possession is restricted by the Migratory Bird Act.
So, if you do incubate them, there are some decisions you need to make about what you are willing and able to deal with.
I think I would feel pretty much the same as you, though....
