    hI everyone, i Have a broody rouen duck named Cherry! I have a few questions.
    1) Cherry is with my other two ducks (one male, and one female) do i need to seperate her from those ducks after the abbuies are born?
    2) Are rouens known to be very consistent brooders?
    thanks for your help.

    I personally would separate her from the others especially the male.

    I agree with Kevin. Better safe than sorry.
