The Ducks have always been allowed to hatch and brood their own eggs. What is strange is that as the flock of Ducks grow the egg production falls from 9/10 to only 5/10 daily. Nesting boxes added before the onset of new females and space in the Duck house expanded. I am at a loss for an explanation unless it is because of the ducks’ nervous tendencies?
Or is it because someone something is stealing helping itself to the eggs?
