This is our female saxony duck… she has made a nest and has 12 eggs in it. It is quite a production to watch her get back on the nest after a quick nip at the chicken food. She preens and spreads her breast and settles down over the 12 eggs. This pair of ducks had several nests last year, but never a baby duck…. so we are hopeful, but know that this pair really doesn’t quite have its act together. Mama duck is a bit scatterbrained, and can abondon a nest for no apparent reason. Keep your fingers crossed we have ducklings to photograph soon!
