Would my 2female call ducks make good mothers
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*.
Ok my she hasn't stared to form a nest or anything like that. They haven't layed an egg yet too
And they are 4 months
