    We have had one wooduck lay an egg and 2 northern pintails lay eggs but no one sat on them so we had to take them. This weather in Virginia is messing them all up!

    Wow, would not think it would be freezing in Florida this late in the year. Sounds like you are off to a good start though. Mallards just started here, nothing else yet except the Honker from my first post.
