I had a Cayuga on a nest. She started with 8 eggs. The drake pulled out and poked holes in 2 or 3. We put up a divider. Two eggs hatched late last night or early this a.m. I guess mama duck trampled on 1, we found it smushed down and covered in bedding There is 1 more egg that I can see in the nest, don't know what happened to the others? The nest is in the duckhouse. Is it possible that the other egg will hatch? She freaks out if I even walk near the house and I don't want the 1 baby to get hurt but I also don't want an exploding egg. Even if I get it out I don't know what I'm looking for. Should I leave it? If so, how long? Storeys book doesnt cover much about letting the mothers hatch out and raise the babies and I realize its because she should know what shes doing (though stomping on one of them makes me question this!) I would like to understand whats happening. Thanks!!
