Duck only sits on eggs during the night

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi, Recently my Khaki Campbell and Indian runner has been laying eggs in a nest so far they have 11 and the KC is sitting on them only during the night because they are always warm during the morning when i let them out.  hu.gifI don't know why she does this and she has also been acting weird.  Like for example when she is in the house when i put them up she quacks and the males come running right to her (broody behaviors??) Can someone give em some advice Im still new to all of this.

Ours did this for a couple weeks before they began to sit through the day as well.

My muscovies did this too. I called them part time broodys. Then one morning when I went to feed and let everybody out she did not budge....she only comes out ever now and then to take a quick dip, eat and drink then its back on the nest. She gets up every couple of days for about 10 minutes
