Hi there everyone. I have read lots of threads but most of them are about broody ducks that could be fertile. I have Pekin (her name is Duck Duck) and Cayuga(named Goose) ladies, no drakes around. I had noticed for a little bit I had not been getting an egg from the Cayuga but I thought maybe she needed a break since she had been laying one daily all through the winter. So today I went out and she was sitting in the corner of the pen not moving, I thought she was dead, sick, or hurt! So I throw out the peas and even then she wouldn't come which was a first. Then I approached her and she got all puffed up and ran away and I found a homemade nest of gumballs and leaves with 14 eggs in it! All hers. The Pekin is still laying in thier house. So I took away all but 2 of the eggs. So now here are my dilemas, first should I go take out the other 2 and break up the nest? Or just let her brood for another couple weeks? I can't believe she was able to hide that many from me for so long! Also do you think those eggs are any good to eat after being sat on? I hate to toss them, but I will if its not safe. Should I try the float test? Thanks for any help!!
