My Ancona duck (hen) made a nest in the corner of the coop that put them in at night. Lately, she has been laying an egg a day starting August 8th. Yesterday, she laid her 4th egg. I went outside last night to check on my goats, because they're due to have kids soon. While I was outside I noticed that Rosie was sitting on her nest. When will the eggs hatch? Should I separate my male Ancona drake? Will he hurt the ducklings or help her? Here are some pictures of her nest and her first 2 eggs. This is my drake (front) and my hen (back). Rosie my hen.
