    My duck has started sitting on her eggs, and I am happy at that. But today she was looking at me like she needed something. There was lots of water, feed, and I had just put some fresh straw in the pen as well. She kept looking at me as if she wanted something else. She has quite a pile of eggs and she has built a nest. She spends alot of her time sitting on the eggs, which I know the will do. Also, when I step in the pen, she makes a strange squeaking noise and points her beak at the ground and stares at me. She is friendly, but I just want to know what she is doing. And is there any thing else I should put in the pen for her? Hope to get some feedback!

    She is telling you, "These are my eggs. I know what I am doing. Keep away."

    Haha, ok, she looks like she knows what she is doing. I will leave her alone.
