    So glad to see the last post included a link to this forum.

    I think there are a few people who commented there- who would benefit greatly by getting the right information here.

    While some ducks will lay and egg in water- others often find their way into ponds by being dropped or rolled by various means.

    I love the term " eggnant" to describe a duck near to or already laying eggs - its cute but to refer to a duck is pregnant is uneducated. I even laugh a little when I see people write about their ducklings being " born" rather than hatching. While some references are because of a lack of experience or knowledge of the right terminology and even sometimes just being cute and trying to humanise the new arrivals - It worries me that there would be a proportion of these people who dont know the right terminology- that also dont know how to correctly care for a duck in regards to the correct feed and housing requirements.

    "We have a duck that keeps dropping eggs into the pool while flying over. Two were just shells and one was a mostly form duckling that the Shell was oozing out of"

    I vote this one as the best![​IMG] Dropping eggs while flying over!!!! I want to see THAT![​IMG]

    Quote:And how is it that a duck flys over a pond and lays and egg with a duckling already starting to form in it?
