I'm the guy with the 2 rouen ducks that I've been trying to figure out if they're male or female. They are now about 5 and a half months old. Last Thursday I changed out their pine shaving/straw bedding and then Friday and Saturday I opened the back doors of their house as I normally do just to get plenty of fresh air in there. Sunday I didn't open the doors because it was raining on and off thru the day. Then Monday when I opened the doors I started to kind of "fluff" up the straw bedding and saw something white under the straw so when I moved some straw away there were 3 eggs in a pile. So at some point on Thur. , Fri.,Sat.,and Sun. night 3 eggs were layed. I still don't know which one or if both of them laid eggs but all 3 were right together and they had been somewhat covered up. those 3 I didn't know what to do with them because I don't know anything about eggs so I put them in a container and put them in my garbage can. From now on in the morning I'm going to look for egg/s and if I find any do I just put them in the refrigerator? Do I wash them first? What happens if I want to have one baby duck? If I have a baby duck from an egg and it's male, does it want to have sex with the mother? There's a mess of questions but I know absolutely nothing about any kind of eggs "straight from the source". Or if you can point me to a previous post for duck eggs?? Thanks.
