Mama duck/ duckling advise please!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My Ancona duck sat on 6 eggs and got three to hatch. She's already squished one. The other two look pretty happy but I haven't seen her let them eat or drink. Can she keep them or should I take them?

On another note, I'm getting 20 more ducklings tomorrow. Can they go in the brooder house with the mama and her 2 day old babies? I'd put a heat lamp and a few food and water sources of course, but would she hurt them? Ignore them? Adopt them?

And she keeps leaving them alone for too long. It's 70 degrees but there's a chilly wind...
