Mallard Duck

Asked May 18, 2016, 11:55 AM EDT

Farm Pond in front of our house. Weeding my front garden & husband spies a nest with 14 duck eggs. We left the area immediately, For the next three days/nights Momma duck on her nest. Next morning, Gone, no sign of anything. No broken eggs, Nothing. Can you please give me an idea of what might have happened? Maybe a raccoon? No loose dogs in the area, we have an outdoor cat, Duck is bigger than her. No idea of where did the eggs go. Can ducks move their own eggs?
