I have a blue fawn call duck hen sitting on eggs due to hatch any day now. She is in a pen with another female and a drake. They seem to get along but should I move the drake and the other hen into a different pen so she can raise her ducklings solo? Will the male do anything to them or is he ok with them? Also, what should I do for water in the pen once the ducklings hatch? Thanks

I would move them just until the babies get a little bigger. for water at first be careful so they don't drown..but i always have a small pan of water and then make it progressively bigger as they grow...then once they're a couple weeks old you can introduce the other guys back into the pen
