    Will a Duck know if an egg is rotten or infertile? I noticed one egg of 9 sitting out in the middle of the pen, reached in to get it and saw she had punched a hole in it and it was running everywhere. Didn't look like it was fertile, she's been sitting for 12 days. Will a duck know this and "purge" her nest?
