    Update: Only two additional eggs in Katharina's nest today, which could mean that she has stopped laying and her two sisters Curiosity and Nona each "donated" one egg. Anyway, i removed the new eggs and made it out of the duck-house alive. Katy is sitting day and night taking only short breaks for water, food and a quick bath.
    Today marks week one… :fl

    Short update: Katharina and i made some progress in our relationship! She granted me access to the duck-house's living and dining room area to wash away the smelly duck poop. I was also allowed to fill up the drinking water and the Oyster-shells.
    But when i dared to distribute the fresh layer of straw too close to the nest she hissed at me! Never heart a duck hissing! Creepy! Dinosaur-genes surfacing…

    I watched a video that had a moody broody Muscovy one time. It looks like one terrifying bird, and not something I want to take an egg from.

    Muscovy's are huge, almost goose size! And they have claws. I would not dare to mess with them.
