    I have a mother duck who has been hatching eggs out. One of the babies hatched and she just left the nest! There are still five eggs left. One of them is hatching right now too! Should I do anything for the eggs she left or should I just leave them alone?

    You should make a hatching area for them. How is the egg that hatched doing.

    Ok thanks I'll do that. The mom is taking care of the duckling that hatched and he/she is doing just fine. I was just worried about the hatching duckling and the other eggs. Thanks again!
