Last year we have given 4 males to someone. 2 wild coloured and 1 trout brothers and 1 white male from other parents. This person wanted males because it was not interested in eggs; They have a big beautifull terrain with a pond and wanted fun animals on it. That worked. They are absolutely in love with them. Unfortunately the trout male got killed by a predatory bird. The white male, with tail-curl, male quack and three times sexed; is brooding on eggs though now! 12 eggs. They have never seen any other ducks on the terrain; so I guess that this white male just found an abandoned nest and got mother-feelings and starting sitting on them is a bit far-fecthed and it probably is a female in disguise. These people haven't removed the eggs because they have 0 knowledge of eggs (they asked today if duck eggs were edible...) and that is also why they wanted maled. I'm having an appointment with them to create a sollution because I feel WE made that mistake. We gave them 4 males; while 1 wasn't. I'm not yet sure what to advice so I was wondering if you guys would help out. - They really adore these ducks and are probably not so into trading ducks. They got really attached to the white duck. - The ducks are luckely unrelated. The two brothers don't seem to have being excessive fighting/mating the white one, or with each other. - They didn't want eggs, and are still not into eggs. - Should I leave it be since the brothers don't seem to have big fights, no mating-stress seems to occur, and tell them to remove the eggs next year (but with this amount of land; there will be a big chance eggs will be hidden). - Trade one of the brothers for another female. (but then rule one applies also) - Trade the white female for a male. They don't want other ducks, they are attached to current ducks, solely because they are incredebilly tame (because we hand-raised them indoor when ducklings), but they will probably never remove eggs, and just create a bunch of ducks and leave them be and inbreeding will occur. I'm also wondering if they might easier say goobye to the white duck; when I help raising the new young ducklings, lend them a brooder, they keep two males from it, I take all the other ducklings including their mom back. They then have two new ducks that are as tame towards them as the white female. That might make it easier to say goodbye to her. Well, this is a bit the situation that I'm not quite 100% sure yet what to advice them when meeting. Every idea is possible to solve this from our side; since we feel responsible for this situation.
