I have pekin ducks. 2 girls and 2 boys. I'm not sure what to do. I have one that has made a nest in the grass by the fence, and I found 8 egggs in it. ( I thought they had quit laying). I didn't know about the nest until my husband mentioned a duck was missing. I had noticed that some times 1 of the ducks was not always with the other 3, but never for long. So, I went on a duck hunt and found her on her nest and she hissed at me. Usually they take off when I get that close. The last few days, I noticed she will be on the nest for several hours, then off it for 1 to 2 hours ranging with the other ducks. The other ducks have started laying in the grass not far from her when she is on the nest. Is all of this normal broody Pekin behavior? It has been in the 60s the last couple of days and down to 34 at night. Will the eggs hatch? Is she staying off the nest too long? Is it too cold or should I just take them away? Please help! I know nothing about ducks hatching eggs!
