    I have four Pekin hens one pekin drake, three rouen hens one is crested, oe rouen drake, one drake dont know what he is, and a indian runner drake that is crested and two african geese. My question is my ducks are laying there eggs in a nest. At first we only thought there were two nest. But I found another nest today. One nest has 16 eggs, another has 6 eggs then the one I found today has 10 eggs in it... how come they havent started kaying on them... they just keep laying more eggs in them? thanks for any answers.
