Odd as it may be, I have a broody Pekin. She's been broody for a week now, only getting off the nest for a few minutes once or twice a day. We don't have a drake, so all her eggs she's on are not fertile. As it happens, I have two mixed breed duck eggs due to hatch any day now. One has just pipped in the last hour. They are in a homemade incubator in my kitchen. I am wondering if anyone has experience popping just hatched ducklings under a broody duck? Is it successful? How would I do it and what would I watch for in terms of rejection? I'd hate to put the little guys at risk, but I'd love to have her be able to raise them if she wants babies, which it appears she does. She's got a beautiful fluffy nest built for the eggs and she seems quite determined. Any advice for or against would be welcome! All responses will be carefully considered.
