My husband found our FIRST EVER DUCKIE EGG LAST NIGHT!!!! And another one came this morning!!! It has been fairly warm here lately (save for snow last week).. We know which hen is laying.. and this is our first ever experience with eggs! We've had our Muscovies for about 9 months, got them at the end of the season last year.. and they were hatched last year as well, so this is their first time laying! So far we've taken the 2 eggs, but, we're talking about letting her hatch a few.. We have 2 males and 3 females right now.. This morning when I collected the egg, I noticed 2 Nests that she appears to be building out of the hay, one in the corner of the pen, another in their igloo (dog igloo in the pen)...She must have started nesting last night because they were not there yesterday.. However, her egg this morning was not "in" the nest.. it was far from it in fact.. We are going to put a cat box with a lid on it in there as another nest for her to use as well.. And we're going to start researching everything we can find about hatching eggs.. Will she eventually lay the eggs in her nest? Or will she move them there once their are several or what? We are both new to this as I said and would like to set the ducks up to have as easy a time as possible If we decide to let them hatch some ducklings.. So, any ideas/advice are appreciated!!
