    No...With a Duck you destroy the nest and block her from returning to it. She will break in a few days..

    She might be back at it. Trying not to get my hopes up this time. She’s been in the dog house pretty much all day and anytime I go near the duck pen, she fluffs her feathers up and starts shaking and hissing.

    I’ll give her a few days to see if she sticks with it, then I’ll give her some good eggs.

    She may have given up on the eggs, but she won’t give up on trying to become Jasmine and Jade’s momma. :love

    She is trying to teach them to eat and drink.

    Our Rouen drake (Roro) has become so much sweeter to them now that the other drakes are gone(they are living a happy life with someone who drove 3 hours round trip just to pick them up). He still gives them a little nip here and there but he’s just telling them who’s in charge.
