we got 2 ducks and a drake last year, one of the ducks is broody, and we let her hatch out a brood. We kept a couple, so now have 3 ducks and 2 drakes . They are Australian spotted, but we also have an Indian runner duck. We are right in the city. The Indian runner lays an egg a day, but I rarely get an egg from the others. When I do it is very fresh, still warm, and this is around 8:30 in the morning when I let them out of their house. They free range in our yard, and often I can’t find the broody duck. Last night when I was putting them in the house for the night, I found out why. She has a nest of 9 eggs behind some debris in the yard. So couple of questions. I don’t dare leave her out all night with them , so do I put them in the house with her, do I incubate them myself. If I put them in the house, do I make a nest box since she wants to be secluded? If I put her in the house with them, assuming I get more eggs from the Aussies, should I just let her keep them too? How do I get them to lay earlier in the day so they have them before I let them out in the yard?
