HHHMMM..she is the same age as one of my Indian Runners who is starting to act a little different. She is definitely more interested in the boys lately and looks to be getting an egg belly... Any day now I hope too.... I have read that Muscovy are slower to mature than other ducks...but you are heading into laying season whereas weather here is starting to cool down. You might be right- she may have been getting an urge to start organising herself a nest.

Congratulations....... I am so happy for you and your duckies.. how exciting... Good to see you recognised her behaviour..Maybe you could try to put somethig that looks like an egg into that box... and she might lay some eggs in there once she gets the hang if it.
