I've been chasing a pair of wild mallards out of my pool routinely for a couple weeks. Today I went out to clean it, and the female duck startled out of some bushes near the pool. I went and looked, and sure enough, there is a nest in there with 12 eggs. What do I do? Ducklings would destroy our pool, for sure! Do ducks go broody the same as chickens? I don't think she's been back there incubating the nest all day - they have been spending a fair amount of time up at our pond, too (where I wouldn't mind ducklings, but she apparently seems to like the pool better). Obviously, if I moved the eggs up to the pond, she'd never find the new nest. But what if I moved the ducklings right after they hatched? Am I even *allowed* to do anything? I know that there are rules for interfering with wild mallard ducks...just not sure what they are.
