Will a female duck froster ducklings if she isn't a mother?

I have a female domestic duck that I want her to foster ducklings but she hasn't had babies yet? Will she take them on or will she kill them?

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! I'm not a duck keeper but I'm guessing it's the same as chickens that if your duck is not broody or not been broody she won't accept the ducklings. I see you have posted on the duck section where I'm sure the keepers there will be able to help you.

Good luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

I think she will either harm them or totally leave them alone.
