I have a male (brown) and female (white) ducks. See pictures attached. They are young, born on the 1st of September. The female has not laid any eggs yet but I can tell by they they are acting, they are mating and it’s going to be very soon. I know I am going to have a very hard time taking the eggs away from her...especially the first one. I think she will get possessive of them and not want me to take them. I love them very much and don’t want them to not trust me..Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

how are they acting? mating doesn’t mean eggs will be coming soon. she will probably wait until next spring to start.

pekins hardly go broody. she won’t even care that you take her eggs lol

He’s been being very touchy with her and pecking her and she had been grunting and going low to the ground and he gets on top of her, etc..,

Yes that’s what I figured they were doing ...lol just curious how possessive she would be over her first egg… I love them very much and worry that she will be not trusting of me once I take it away.
