Hello, We have a family of wild Muscovy ducks that have "adopted" us. We truly enjoy them (except the poop!) but they stay on our front porch most of the day. It is a mom, dad and 5 adult baby ducks. About 3 weeks ago, the mom laid 1 random egg in our bushes. We went away on a camping trip and when we returned, the egg was smashed Now momma duck has laid another random egg on our front porch on the bricks & she has not built a nest or anything. None of the ducks sit on it but I think they are turning it and they sit "near" it (about a foot away). Not sure what to make of it...it's not in a nest, their not sitting on it. Could it be like a "gift" egg to our family or maybe the momma duck wants to see how protected eggs would be is she nested here? Any ideas?
