    So I went outside to collect eggs and I find my duck in the coop with the eggs I left in there because I thought a hen was going to lay on them. She puffed up and grunted at me, I know she isn't harmful so I reached in and got the eggs out that were laid today. I'm worried that I've scared her and made her feel like I didn't want her laying on the eggs because she jumped out of the coop and ran to the water. Did I discourage her or will she go back?
    I also don't know if the eggs I left in are good? I left them in there 10 days ago?
