In the Brooder
- Aug 7, 2014
So I have 7 pet ducks that I've acquired through different means. All of them are around half a year old with a couple a little older or younger. They live pretty independently on our land and have 2 large ponds they swim around and forage in. While walking my dog around today, I saw 4 different eggs, all with a hole in them and the yolk and everything gone from the inside. They weren't in a nest or anything just kinda in different areas near where they sleep. If the ducks wanted these eggs to hatch would they have made a nest and laid them in there? Also, I'm not sure what got to the eggs. If it was my dog I feel like the eggs would have been completely smashed. There's geese that roam around our land too but I'm not sure if they would have done it. Maybe a raccoon or something? Should I be worried for my ducks or potential ducklings or will they hide the eggs better if they actually want the eggs to hatch?
