    My two ducks have been checking out there little pet carrier filled with shavings for a few days now. Staying for as long as an hour. Is it just me or are they egg bound.

    How old are they? Are they showing any odd symptoms/behaviors? Any eggs yet?

    My drakes would go in the little crate I used for a nest so they may just be checking out a cozy spot.

    I bet they are just checking it out, my ducks and chickens will usually start watching and practicing before they actually lay their first egg.
