Galya's been sleeping in this little space between a hedge and the house, protected by the back deck. Yesterday I looked at her back there and noticed three white eggs poking out from under her. Upon closer inspection we discovered that she had laid 17 eggs in total, and had been hiding them back there for who knows how long. She has been displaying some erratic behavior, like bobbing her head while darting back in forth in a zigzag "evasive maneuver," and puffing up her chest and ruffling her feathers any time anyone goes back there. Now that we know she's fertile, we might make more trips to the duck pond. . .
