ok, so I have 2 ducks - 1 male, 1 female - they're both about 5 months old. and yesterday the female laid an egg! and then I found another 1 this morning! I didn't take away the 1st egg and now there are 2 eggs in their hutch. The female doesn't seem to be sitting on it at all - in fact she doesn't seem interested in them at all. the male though is very protective of them. can I take them away and eat them? or are they fertile? how do I tell the difference? I'm really not sure what to do here, as these are my first ducks and I really wasn't expecting eggs just yet.
