Duck won't leave nest

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey, my duck won't leave her nest. It's been well over 4 weeks and her eggs won't be hatching but she's still sitting on them and wont let me near them. I cant imagine its healthy for her so what should I do? Let her eventually give up or remove the eggs from the nest? Will she go back to normal if the eggs are gone?

She will have a better chance of getting off the nest if you remove them.  I would put on a coat and gloves and watch your face to while you ease her off the eggs and get rid of them.Clean the nest and remove any eggs as she lays.  Good luck and be careful.
