We rescued the eggs and have them in a box temperature heat appx. 98
Mommy duck She is looking everywhere,nest area all
shrub nest gone. Flooded.

Would it ok to Catch the Mommy duck and put her in this big cage we have
Will she recognize they are hers since nest was completely gone? sit on them anyway?

We live across street from lake, a great plan would
put eggs in cage leave door open hope to get her to take over without having to catch her?
