How many eggs does a bird lay?

Answer


Marcia Cardenas

All female birds lay eggs, but the number of eggs in each laying, or clutch, varies greatly from one kind of bird to another. For example, most sea birds lay only one or two eggs, since the nests of these birds are rarely attacked by enemies. But ducks, geese, and other waterfowl that are often visited by nest- robbing creatures often lay as many as 20 eggs in a clutch in order to make sure that some of their eggs will survive.
