Egg Update

When I came home from work I saw a second egg on Ducky Island. From what I've read, Mallards will lay 1 egg a day, and they don't sit on them until all the eggs are laid, since they want them all to hatch at the same time. All that the hen usually does to prepare her nest is to wiggle her breast into moist ground to create a depression. I still can't imagine that Agnes is using Ducky Island for her nest, but I guess time will tell.
