Greetings,

I have a muscovy duck, who has decided to have ducklings. She has layed her clutch in our juniper bush, and seems to be doing fine. However, she has no access to food and water, and she will be there for roughly 30 days. What should I do? Can I go in with food and water now and then? And can I transfer her and her nest to a more accessable location?

Is there any way you could just leave her a bucket of water and some food near the bush she's nesting in? She's probably sneaking off her nest some time during the day to eat and drink. If she's safe and comfortable, I would just try taking the food and water to her rather than disturbing her nest site.
