Or Duck Math I have 4 female ducks. Two have been laying for about a month. The last 2 for the past 7-10 days. I have been getting 3-4 eggs a day since the new ones started laying. This morning my dd came in the house holding a soft shelled egg. (I got another soft shelled egg a few days ago.) She said there were at least 7 eggs in the duck house and nesting boxes. I went to look and there were 7 regular eggs, 1 soft shelled egg and 1 egg mass. Yesterday I got 3 eggs and the day before only 2 but before then I got 4 a day for a few days in a row. My duck house where they spend the night is small. There is NO place to hide eggs. Now it is possible my dd missed seeing an egg yesterday. But 9 eggs? In 1 day? That doesn't add up!
