    One of our ducks just hatched her eggs. She has a nest out of the yard in some tall weeds. My question is when should we try to get them in the yard by the rest of our chickens and ducks or should we leave her be and hope that she brings them up by herself? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

    I wish I knew! Try posting this question under the duck section, I'm sure you'll get your answers there. [​IMG]

    I would let her bring them when she is ready. She will probably wait so that they don't get ran over by the chickens...etc...My mallard hen did this. She wouldn't allow them to come around the others for a week or so.
