    So every day but 2 Weeza has produced an egg. Today is no different. There are 23 - 1 more than yesterday. She has no interest in her nest during the day. It's obvious she tends it at night and sits on it when she's locked up. Is there a point where I give up on her committing to sit an hatch out her growing clutch? Will she stop laying or is she just in a laying routine? Just curious. Also my drake has lost his curl. No worries - he's 100% male. I promise, but no curl now.

    sounds like the drake is going to molt. e will not be fertile while molting.

    not all/every duck will sit and hatch eggs. Some are more broody than others, some never sit ever for any reason.

    But they still breed during molting? What else happens during molt?

    Should I get an incubator for the eggs or just let her keep on?
