    One of my pekin ducks have been sitting on eggs on and off,but the last 4 days she hasn't got up at all. She made a nest in the flower bed and I was told it's not a good idea to move her. Would it be a good idea to fence in the flower bed and put a small pool in for her with her food and water. It's a pretty big area,the length of our house? Or would it frighten her and make her made to where she won't continue to sit? I don't want predators getting to her or any babies that hatch.

    I would rather risk her abandoning the nest than have her torn up by predators.
