That makes sense. Now if she would lay them in the same spot we would be in business lol. Thank you.I haven't tested this but have heard that ducks will not sit on 1 egg like a chicken. They will not go broody until they have a clutch that they determine to be the right amount. So if you want a duck to set you have to leave the eggs alone. Again...I am not an expert this is just what I have found when researching the topic.
You could try keeping her in the pen for a few days to see if that works. I have found success in putting a large plastic trash barrel on it's side w/ hay & shavings inside & stabling it w/ rocks in the pen - my 2 adult Cayuga lay in it pretty much faithfully - unless they want to lay @ the same time & can't share then maybe 1 every month or so I'll get an egg outside the barrel opening.That makes sense. Now if she would lay them in the same spot we would be in business lol. Thank you.
I love getting the feeder fish & putting them in their pool!! Now that they have discovered our pond (we made it years ago when some neighbors decided they didn't want a pond & just filled it with gravel & dirt till it flooded our back 1/4 of our property) It has frogs & bugs n all but no fish - I will be populating it with fish as soon as we get some actual steady spring time weather. Can't wait, will have to make a nice log bench to sit out there to watch them!Today I feed my 2 little girl live minnows and crickets. I think it brightened everyone's day.
