    I have a pair of wood ducks in a nice pen together. They have a nice area with a few perches and a nice water tank for them. Theres a spot where both the female and male go in that is covered with their feed in it. Should I add a wood duck house for her to lay eggs in, or will the hen lay eggs where both her and the male go? What should I do that would increase my chances for her to lay eggs?

    Wood ducks are cavity nesters - I would provide her with a raised wood duck box to encourage nesting.
