We found three wild baby ducks in our yard today.I have a broody hen who refuses to not be broody.Can I put the baby ducks under her?

yes but do it at night and try not to disturb her alot or she may lose her brood and seperate her from the flock until they are about 5 weeks old and then put them with the flock

Thanks.I had baby chicks last year under a broody, but they were just in with the rest of the flock.
