Egg Neglect

A muscovy duck abandoned her nest just before it started to hatch. Four lame ducklings managed to hatch but soon died and the rest just died in their eggs. I wanted to slap her around and yell at her but I don’t think that would have been productive. I don’t know what made her leave. It’s possible something scared her away or maybe it was just taking too long and she gave up just short of success.
