Last year was my first year having wild waterfowl. When my wood duck hens would lay I would take an egg every day and leave one in the nest. I thought I would get more eggs this way, but i guess i was wrong I only got 21 eggs out of 3 hens. Now i know that you let them lay until they pull feathers to cover the eggs. Then they could possibly lay again. Would it be better to let the hen set and hatch the eggs or pull them out and put them under a broody hen? Now I have egyptian geese and barheaded geese do i need to pull their eggs or just let them hatch them. Also I could possibly get a pair of blue-winged teals and north american pintails. So what about these also.
