Please help me - Muscovy nesting hen question


May 22, 2017
Hello everyone! I'm new to the forum so please be patient with me if I don't use the right lingo.
We have feral Muscovies in our development, and 2 are sitting on nests in my yard. The first hen is due to hatch her eggs in a few days and the other just started sitting a few days ago. The first hen had a few rotten eggs she removed. Yesterday and today I caught her sitting on the other hen's nest. I directed her back to her own nest and all seems well. Do they get confused? Is it normal to steal another nest? Does it mean that there's a problem with her eggs? I smelled them and they seemed ok. All help is appreciated
