    This is Majellan.

    She picked a really crappy spot to nest, literally. it;s next to our kennels in a bush . the eggs look like she may have gone for a swim in the muck during hose off time and sat on them again...


    can this affect the eggs?

    should i toss em?

    Shes been sitting a week that I know of.

    Ducks and mud have been friends for ages, I don't see why this would hurt them. Let her keep them; at worst you get nothing from the eggs, but that's all you'd get throwing them away, right?
