Hi - I have a duck who is great at getting broody and sitting, but she throws her eggs out one by one until there is only one left - that hatches and then we find the duckling dead every time....before it's even dried off :-( This has been happening for 2 years - I was hoping she'd get better at it as she got older, but she hasn't. I pinched half her eggs this time and incubated them - aiming to give them back the day after they hatched so they're a bit stronger and more able wriggle etc....so the Mum would realise they were ducklings...? So I have 2 newly hatched ducklings and another cracking the egg open as we speak - mum has 3 eggs under her, one of which was starting to crack this morning first thing. I have been procrastinating all day - I really don't want to give the ducklings to the mum and then have her attack them :-( We can look after them ourselves...but then the 'mum' seems to really want to be a mum!! Does anyone please have any opinions/advice....?
