    So i think my muscovy duck Trudy that i free range with 2 other scovies i think is about to go broodyor already i discvoered a nest of 9 eggs that is in a huge nest down feathers and old leaves and such. this morning she wasnt on them then the afternoon she was sitting on them and when i went up to touch her or anything she WOULD NOT butdge and they hate me touching them she just sat there and look at me. Then this evening she isnt on them again? do you think she is just laying more and more eggs so that she can have a big enough clutch then she will really commit?

    I think she will fully commit.

    Let her be undisturbed as much as possible.
