Both of my Indian Runners lay their egg in the same spot each morning. Yesterday she was angry and biting at me when I tried to take them then sat on the two eggs for a good part of the day until I finally took them out. She did the same today so I slipped two wooden eggs under her and she sat on those two eggs all day! Isn't it odd that she would be sitting on only two?

Hi Dottie, sounds like she is broody and has the urge to sit, have noticed this with my ducks they start to sit even before they have a full clutch. Is she still sitting? Hope you are well. Best wishes Sara @ farmingfriends
Thank you Sara for your reply. No, she is not sitting anymore. I took all the wooden eggs away and now no one lays in that spot anymore and I'm getting one less egg a day so perhaps she is on strike... lol.
