About 2 weeks ago I blowed and glued some eggs to make fake eggs and put in my pen for the chickens and ducks. Well one of the fake eggs dissapeared and I search and searched for it. No egg. Yesterday I saw a white dirty egg sitting at the spot where the ducks like to lay around,

Gotta love that duck humor!

We got our first chicken egg yesterday, and I'd love to know who laid it. Just before it happened, they were all up in the coop making a lot of noise. They don't normally hang out there - they stay in their pen below. We didn't think to look who was in the nest box. We just figured they were having a party or something!

Now we're wondering if the others weren't cheering the egg-layer on!

I'm thinking we could probably figure out who it was by checking their vents, but I'd rather let the girls keep their mystery.

I've read on here before----put lipstick on their butts and as the egg comes out there will be lipstick on it. Just don't use it on yourself if you use it on the ducks.

Have you seen any mating going on?? My little cayuga went broody but none of the eggs were fertile.

I have a drake but I only see him mate with one duck only. I would go ahead and bator it because you can candle it later.
Good luck
