    Petunia has been sitting on a nest of eggs for awhile, does anyone know how long it takes for her to hatch them, she has at least 10 plus eggs under her, she has built up quite a nest in her box, just need some info on what to do, these are our first call ducks we have 5 total.
    Any info on call ducks would be great :):)

    From the time she committed which means she started sitting 24/7 and only comes off to eat drink bath and poop you start counting 28 days which means it could be 28-30 days All the best for a great hatch. Having ducklings hatch this time of year means she may need some help keeping them all warm being such a small duck mama. So when ever the big day arrives be sure to keep an eye on everything. and great thread..https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/760871/call-ducks-finally-hatched/1370#post_12299117
