    A duck laid 7 eggs in my back yard. The problem is that my dog will eat them if they hatch or eat the mother if he is able to catch her while she is sitting on them. I'd rather not have to break the eggs to make sure they don't hatch. Is there anywhere I can bring them? Help!

    If you remove and destroy her nest she should move on and nest somewhere else. If the eggs haven't been incubated yet they are just eggs.

    I agree....Destroy the nest and throw out the eggs....
