    Hello all. New to BYC forums... I have been using this website for over a year when I have duck troubles and finally decided to join up. The reason for joining is.... I have 4 14 month old ducks... a drake(white crested) and 3 hens ( white crested) & 2 (black Swedish)... Both the swedish hens have gone broody 2x this year and both times have failed to hatch. :'( my question is why? does anyone know? Im going gaga for baby duckling!!!!!!!! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Are you sure the eggs were fertile? Some breeds don't make the best broodies and can quit halfway.

    To be honest... I am not sure if the eggs where fertile. There is a Drake so they should have been unless he isnt doing his job right. lol (he is a white crested and is a bit slow) Thanks for the reply.
