    I've got a broody buff Orpington that has been sitting on a handful of duck eggs. 3 have hatched so far. I've never had a chicken hatch ducks. Is there anything special I need to keep in mind?

    She will do fine raising them, but she will be VERY upset when they decide to go swimming in the water! :D
