    I absolutely cannot take these ducks anymore, I love them all, but with ALL the places they could nest, WHY must they fight over ONE?

    I came out to Mouse, Stencil,Maude,AND Rosilee ALL in Mouses nest spot, her eggs scattered ALL over the place, [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I have done EVERYTHING to keep mouse IN and everyone else OUT, so i've given up,

    I plan to take all or most of her eggs, either to lighten her load, or to make her start completely over somewhere else, because that nst spot was originally Rosilees anyways, so i'm going to block it off so only Rosilee can get in. [​IMG]

    I'm now in a bad mood

    The easiest way to keep that from happening is to set a cage over the nesting area so nothing can get in or out. Then give her food and water far away from the nest and keep an eye on her.

    The others will pick their own spot when they realize they can't get to that one.

    Good luck with it [​IMG]

    I decided to leave her eggs with her, shes been on the nest all day, so i put wire all the way around the top area, it's flimsy, so even if the Muscovy trys to get in there, it'll knock her away,woot!

    heres to 25 days from now, new baby peeps
