    One of my female Muscovy ducks was sitting on a nest. The eggs disappeared and I assume a snake got them as nothing else could get in. When will she start to lay again? I have put fake ceramic eggs and one golf ball around for the snake and they are still there. Why is she not laying? Was looking forward to having some duckling hatch.
    Bummed out on this for sure
