Here's my story... About two years ago I purchased two Pekins from our local Tractor Supply store during Easter. It was me that wanted them, but gave the excuse they were Easter presents for my two nieces at the time. Turned out, I had two drakes, and I loved them both and even built them a nice pen with a condo, as I call it. All was well, until one of the Pekins "Daffy" got into a battle with my beagle, and unfortunately he didn't win. So now I keep them separate since they can't play nice. "Donald" my other drake was lonely, so I acquired "Daisy" about 6 months ago with the hopes I could raise my own Pekins. I didn't think Donald knew what to do with Daisy, but as I've discovered in the last week, he does, so I'm starting to prepare for eggs. After doing a lot research on Pekins, I understand that they are not very broody, and will lay a clutch of eggs. So if I need to incubate these eggs do I need to pick them up as she lays them and put them one by one in the incubator? Or should I wait and see if she decides to get broody? I've even considered getting a broody bantam hen to help her. What do you all do that raise ducks? Also what should I do with the ducklings after they hatch...leave them with the mother or remove them, etc? Should they be kept under a heat lamp for a while if the weather is still cool?
