We have a pair of Mallards stop by and hang out in our pool for a few weeks every year. Our dogs are used to them and give the ducks a wide berth when they walk by the pool. I just noticed that in the last few hours, the hen laid an egg on the deck by our pool. The egg is in no way in a nest as you can see by the photo (the egg is the white thing next to the skimmer cover). The entire yard is surrounded by a six foot fence, so I guess the egg is better protected from predators than anywhere else it could be. Is there any way we could move the egg into a pile of straw or a box for additional protection?

I am looking at a property in Williams, Josephine county, OR It has an idenitifed well that no one knows were it is. Not even the water master. The well was driled in 1978 but the driller looks to not be around any more. How can I find this thing? Any Ideas?
I live in Eugene, and am interested in keeping 2 mini-Nubians goats. Do you have any information available on expected expenses of keeping this breed (in town) per year? I'm wondering about both initial expenses (such as fencing, shelter, climbing toys, milk buckets and jars, etc.) and continuing expenses (feed, breeding/disbudding, health care, milk filters, hoof trimming, etc.).
