I'm looking after my neighbours 3 Muscovy ducks whilst they're away. Neighbour told me that one has a clutch of around 17 eggs.
I just went to put them away and all the eggs were out of the shed / nest and lying outside on the ground. I'm bewildered as to how they've ended up outdoors but i've checked each egg and put them back in the nest. All are OK - but one which is a slightly weird shape. I've taken that one out. The mum has gone straight back on to sit them fortunately.
I hope i've done the right thing? What do I do with the shapely egg? I have a Brinsea eco mini which is currently set with Bantam eggs due to hatch in 9days. The duck egg is sitting on my kitchen bench at the moment. Can I set it in with my Bantams?
I know nothing of ducks or their eggs. Please help! Thank you
