    Should I remove the chicken eggs? I was letting our muscovy keep them becuaaause I took a few of her own, but one of our chicken hens keeps laying a new egg here each day. Should I just take the chicken eggs away? I think the clutch is getting too full? I could check for growth and but them in the bator...?

    personally i'd take the chicken eggs out, or if you wanted to leave some, mark them with a pencil so you can take the new eggs added each day out.

    I went ahead and took them out (mad mama duck!!)...cndled them (clear) so cracked them (clear). The hens are with a roo but he's just starting to crow....so I'm not surprised.
