It rained last night and my duck's laying box got a little wet I made some changes to the coop to protect a little better from the rain. WIll the rain damage the eggs? .......The storm was bad lots of lightning and thunder. She has four eggs and has been laying everyday since Sunday, except for last night. Could it be that she got spooked with the weather?

Please help any info is appreciated

Thank you

The eggs should be fine as long as they weren't sitting in a puddle of water; a little wet/damp shouldn't hurt. It's not unusual for a day to be skipped and I doubt the storm would stop her from laying.
