We have a broody muscovy ( BIG WHITIE) sat tight on 10 eggs .New to this, can we clean the nest area at all without fear of disturbing her? Nearly two weeks in getting a bit whiffy!

I would just do a bit of light hose keeping removing the worst of it ovvering some fresh hay around her .. I dont like to get to invasive , but if you are gentle I doubt shes going to stop sitting now ..

I clean around my girls and add fresh hay but i never actually touch the nest... when the babes hatch i clean house .. of coarse it probably depends on the temperament of the hen too.
