    I know Ally and Cadbury are laying. This morning I was busy with the outside chores before work and saw Cadbury take off running toward the wooded area behind the shed. I guessed she was going to a nice nest over there, but she didn't. i'll have to follow her tomorrow as all I know is she laid her egg in there somewhere and Ally likely went next. I haven't been able to find where they've been hiding them recently.

    Or maybe I'll stick an egg in their house tomorrow night to remind them that's where they go!

    Our ducks lay their eggs EVERYWHERE! I set a camera up to record them, and my Rouen layed her egg, rolled it out of the nest box, then under the pallets that their water sits on... [​IMG]
    And sonew123 is right,,,, they really do like to bury their eggs, or hid them where no one but them can find them

    I followed Cad this morning, but only after she ducked into the woods, so I still have no idea. I'll have to sneak over behind her tomorrow and see where the stash is.
