Six eggs in the nest

The ducks have been in their new home ten days now. In that time Bossy Pants has laid seven eggs in her nest.  We were out of town last weekend and when we came back one of the eggs had been smushed and pushed out of the nest so that leaves 6 eggs, beautifully tucked in around the edges of the round nest. Here's the nest from above, in the corner of the duck house:

What we've read is that ducks usually lay 5-15 eggs before they sit on them; we may see that happen in the next week or so!
