Help! Disturbed nest of duck eggs by accident!
My husband and I were removing some bushes from our landscaping when we noticed a nest of eggs had been underneath. We did not touch them with our hands, but my husband did move one a little with a stick. We put the bush back over the nest to protect the eggs.
We believe that they are duck eggs (can't imagine what else they would be). I've been doing some research on the internet about incubating them, but I have no idea how far along they are.
Is there a way to tell how far along they are? I don't know if they'd be better off if I just leave them and hope the mom comes back, or if I should make an attempt to save them.
Any advice is appreciated!! I believe there are at least 5 eggs, but there could be more.
