Is it true that a duck knows if an egg that she is setting on is rotten? Both of my ducks have been pushing eggs out of their nests and when I check the egg, it is always rotten. They both have been setting for over 2 weeks.One has pushed out 4 and the other one has got rid of 2.Thank you.

I haven't done the broody duck thing, but it has held true with my chickens. Interesting, isn't it?

Same with my chickens. My goose also does it. It is interesting! It's amazing what they can tell without even looking inside the egg! (wish we could do that!)

Yes, I have a flock of ducks and every time my hens push an egg out of her nest I crack it open. They are ussually rotten! :p Plug your nose! :p

Good Luck, sillygoose4ever!
