My Mandarin started to lay for the first time yesterday. I need your advice on, can I pull the egg from the box everyday? Will she continue to lay or will taking her eggs cause her to stop laying? Should I leave the eggs until she has more, then take. I don't want her to set right now. In fact, will she even set her first year? I want to hatch some with my BEI's eggs. I am a first timer with Mandarin eggs. I got them as ducklings last year and ended with a pair. Thanks for any advice on them you can give me.
