I have two Muscovy ducks who are sharing a nest box. Beth went broody but two other ducks were laying eggs in her clutch. Gwen went ahead and started another clutch elsewhere but Arwen, who I hadn't suspected was even laying yet being a month younger, started sitting in the nest with Beth two days ago. There are a lot of eggs in there. Last count was 22 that I could see without disturbing the down but I suspect 24-26. I noticed they brood together then one will "take a break" for a short time then the other will take a break either later in the day or the next. Someone is on the nest all the time. Will they co-parent when the ducklings hatch? Beth is either head duck or 2nd in line and I thought Arwen was at the bottom. Could Arwen just be helping out and possible not be laying yet? This is all new to me being a first time Muscovy parent.
