Correction - setting duck. Mama Duck started laying eggs again last month. She was laying in a corner of the goat shed, where there are too many goat feet for it to be safe for either eggs or ducklings. I kept collecting the eggs, so she started hiding them. When she didn't show up for scratch the other day we started looking around for her. I have to say she chose a good spot. She and her eggs were completely protected from a hail storm the other night.
Muscovies incubate their eggs about 35 days, so ducklings are expected sometime the first week of April.
