    I was wondering if Call Ducks sometimes bury their eggs to protect them, and keep them warm.
    Does anyone know?

    Mine will kind of bury them in the straw......I think it's just to keep them hidden, not warm.

    They will cover them up after they lay each egg, to *hide* them from predators, or me when I collect them. [​IMG]
