I have three nests going right now. In nest box #1 I have a muscovy covering about 14 scovie eggs, little britches is a silkie banty- they are both dedicated and getting along well- but they both sit in that one box- I am not worried about that little banty breaking big ole duck eggs- but I do wonder about over heating the eggs with two mommies in box #2 I have another scovie who is about a week in, she had 16 eggs under her, yesterday she pushed one out of the nesting box and severalfeet away- and today another in nesting box #3 I have another tiny little banty covering a half dozen or so scovie eggs, she pushed two out today- completely out of the box and away ( there is a lip on my boxes, so it is not like they accidently rolled out or just got pushed out a little- someone had to work hard to get them out of the box) why are they pushing eggs out? in box #1- she has been going the longest she started on the 13th, the other two boxes are about a week in only too many eggs and they just wanted less? Did they decide those eggs were no good? I candled them- they were developing nicely - but they had gone cold, so I did not save them - should I have just put them back under the hens? Or did the hens do it on purpose? It seems like it is them knowing something I do'nt and I have faith that they know best- but I would like a clue why they are doing it... any ideas?
