Argh! Angry at my broody duck Lillegull today. She had a perfectly good nest, the best of all the broodies, with lots of bedding and comfort. For some reason she decided to move it 2 feet and is now sitting on bare floor with the eggs rolling away from under her. And they're due in 2 days!!!
Took 5 eggs from her and placed them in the bator. I NEED to get at least 2 ducklings, one for her and one for another broody who's laying on dud eggs.
Why are ducks so stubborn?!
It's summer but it's like 15C so she's not getting away with that excuse.
The summer's been excellent so far actually. The last 2 years it was intolerably hot and dry, up to 40C (which is insane for a Scandinavian, probably normal for an Australian ) , so far this year it's been mostly cloudy and under 20C and I'm loving it!
I think she might be restless and getting bored of sitting. A few more days and you're home free girl!
