    One of our ducks is laying eggs in a little pool they use to swim in. So far we just put them in (what's supposed to be) they're nest box, hoping they'll catch on. Also this is their first time laying eggs. Is this a habit we need to break, or are they just inexperienced and will eventually learn?
