We got some ducklings April 1, probably only a couple days old at the time. Well, yesterday morning I woke up to see 1 egg on the blanket in our shower stall down in our basement. I brought the ducks outside where they stay and put the egg in a dog igloo with straw, they do go in it. She hasn't laid any more since then, she hasn't gotten aggressive or protective of it either, the male certainly is territorial and agressive if we get close. We were in Canada on vacation for 2wks, we've been home now for 3 and get this surprise. They were locked up together the whole time with a kiddy pool in their enclosure. What is the likelihood this egg is viable and she will lay more since every 1-2 days they lay. Are they to young? The male definitely has mated with her several times at 1st I thought it was dominence/practice. Well I guess they perfected it. I've never own ducks before so any suggestions or advice I would truly appreciate. My sons, 12 & 10 don't want me to take the egg. I'm sure next spring it will be the real deal, but is this or could this be the real deal? And how long before I should remove the egg if she doesn't lay any more? It does seem small, but then again, what do I know. HELP!
