:truthfully you should put the frog back where you found it. it needs to breed. if you find a frog in a month or two then keep that one but let them finish their business.
:can't really help with the eggs but get some water from the pond for them.
Around where I live, they start breeding in late March. The eggs I found were from Chorus frogs, so the one I caught had bred the night before. I took only one frog so I wouldn't hurt the population(there are thousands in the revine that I caught her in, and they're very abundant in the town I live in). I've caught just about every species of frog native to my area, and if it's very abundant I keep only one, if it's hard to find or protected I photograph it and put it back. I also report amphibian sightings and what I catch(and where I found it), to my local DNR for their record books. I'll keep her, but also I wouldn't do anything to decrease the population of them. Thanks.
