Duck Eggs Scattered Away from Active Mallard Nest

We have a mallard duck who has made her nest under a lilac bush in our back yard. She has been sitting on it for about 4 days. The weird thing is every one of these four days we have found random eggs in our yard. Are these bad eggs that's she getting rid of? We have not touched them hoping she'll move them to her nest. These four eggs are all within two or three feet of each other.

Let nature take it's course. The mother will do what's right. These things happen for a reason. There could be something wrong with the egg. Let mom and nature handle it. You can be a Angel and watch over it!

At times birds in the wild will do this and there is nothing to be alarmed about. They sometimes do this to keep predators away from the nest and the eggs can be taken instead of the eggs the bird is sitting on. Just leave them alone the bird knows what she is doing and it is one way to keep predators away from her nest.

If the eggs are inconveniencing you, feel free to move them. It's all well and good that nature takes its course, but whatever is safe
