My pekin duck just started laying eggs yesterday. We got one egg yesterday and one egg today. She is climbing up the little ramp we have for the hens to get to the nesting boxes and laying in there, even though we made her her own nesting box on the floor of the coop. Anyway, this morning after we took her second egg inside with us, she began acting very sad. She just sat in the corner of the coop and stared up at the nesting box like she was missing her eggs. Will she eventually understand and get used to the fact that we will take them each day? We felt awful seeing her just staring at her empty nest box.
