    one of my WH ducks has decided to go broody, i think. she is 8 months old. she keeps building up her nest in the laying box but she is not sitting on any eggs as i collect them every morning. the eggs are not fertile anyway. i keep shooing her out but she makes a ruckus at me, runs around, gets some water and hops back in. i have only had ducks since march so i am not entirely confident in what i am doing. can i just give her some fertile duck eggs to hatch or is it different than with broody chickens? someone, please advise.

    Yes you can just give her duck eggs to hatch like with broody chickens.
