I have a muskovy hen (also a pekin and a mallard hen) who have been laying for several months. I collect eggs daily and this has never been an issue - until today....I let them all out of the night pen this morning and everyone went running out, as usual, except the skovy. She is sitting on the nest (which is a plastic dog house with hay inside). I tried to reach in to shoo her out and get the eggs and she fluffed up and tried repeatedly to bite me!! I tried for about 3 hours to get her off and get the eggs and finally gave up... What is the best way to handle this? I do not want babies till spring....If she gets off later, are the eggs still ok to eat or will they not actually be "growing" for several days of her setting? I don't want to do anything that will traumatize her for future sittings, but I really don't want easter (or new years) babies!! Thanks for any advice!!
