    My duck hatched out only 2 eggs the last one on Wednesday. Today she completely redid her nest and kicked 3 eggs out. Now she has three left. I'm not sure which ones may be good, our other female has a habit of laying her eggs in the same nest when the female that is sitting gets off to eat.

    I would take the eggs in and candle them, If no signs of fertility, then discard the eggs. if you see chicks or movement, then return them at once. You may want to take half at a time, so she don't abandon the nest. Good luck!
