Broody duck problems. HELP PLEASE.


In the Brooder

Two of my runners are sitting on around 20 eggs, the first eggs are at about day 26 and tonight I found one that had been thrown out of the nest and smashed open with nearly formed duckling inside. The same happened last year and out of a dozen eggs we got zero. I don't want them to have wasted a month sitting, is this happening because the eggs have failed or is it because runners aren't typically maternal or good broodies and they are killing them for some reason?

Is there a way of 'finishing them off' inside my house?!
