    My duck has been sitting for about a week now but she nested in a dangerous spot so I was wondering if there is a way to move both her and the eggs into a different pen and her still sit on them?

    It might be easier to move something over her to cover her nest. We actually lifted a chicken tractor over a hen on a nest before and kept her and the ducklings safe that way. We also have various half dog crate shelters we use to cover nests in the open to hide them from the crows.
