Everyone will tell you how prolific muscovies are. "If you have a pair, you'll soon have dozens," they'll say.
But this makes at least the third time that our gal has failed to hatch a single egg. (Not always her fault - Jasmine found and ate all the eggs once.)
This time she laid about ten of them, in the chicken coop. She sat on them all night, wandered around off the nest most of the day, and then finally abandoned them after a week or so.
