Hi! My name is Prima. At the end of April last month, I discovered a wild mallards nest in the bushes of our yard while gardening. There were 7 eggs in her clutch & she began incubating on April 30th. I placed a wireless cam by her nest & caught all her comings & goings. Everything was fine for a couple wks until a possum found the nest. It ended up eating 3 of the eggs & damaged a fourth. Ultimately the mother abandoned the nest as the possum kept coming back. I rescued & hatched the 3 remaining eggs successfully using my own DIY/homemade incubator & a lot of reference to the forums on this site. The members here are super helpful & I'm happy to be part of this community!
