    I wanted to see if they would hack there own eggs they have laid 16 but they are not sitting on them we have hatched before with an incubator but would liked them to have hatched there own.

    is there any way to encourage them to sit on there eggs

    Leave them alone. My hen waited until there were an insane amount of eggs before she sat. After she was setting for about a week I waited until she was "on break" and cleared out the nest. I put only what I wanted to hatch back in. What does the nest area look like? My ducks like the medium sized dog houses and dogloos. They're large yet private.
