    Can we have specific age?
    Has she had eggs before?
    Is she broody?
    Has she recently mated?
    Is she starting to form nest?
    A very young duck-hen will have little chance if not at all to have eggs and ducklings.
    Even if she has hatched some ducklings, they will have little chance of survival for a starter mom.
    Now with a 2 year old duck hen or a duck hen that has been having eggs and hatching them makes them great mothers.
    And I think it will be pretty obvious.
    But you can't tell if duck-hens will be great mothers just by appearance.
    It's all in experience.
    First timers/hardly successful. Made Babies before's/ Very successful *IF she has been broody or had a lot of hatchlings before*.
