Here's a fascinating thing: I have ducks. That is not the fascinating part... they are indian runner ducks, meaning they are runner ducks of some unknown malaysian origin (not indian. confusing, I know). But born (hatched) in Sweden (my kitchen).
Anyway, the ducks were 4: one male, Pippin, and his 3 ladies: Frodo, Merry and Bilbo (shh, nevermind the names). Merry decided a couple of weeks ago that she wanted baby ducks, and laid herself on top of a few eggs I had left in case someone wanted to brood.
Merry has built the most amazing nest for her eggs! Its... roughly 2 dm tall, made of cut straw that I use as ground bedding in their house. When Merry leaves the nest, she covers all eggs with straw?! To keep them warm? So clever of her. >
