Do Pekin ducks generally care for ducklings they have hatched themselves?

    That is unpredictable. Some do, some don't. And I am writing about ducks in general. Some sit and hatch, then turn on the babies. I don't think there is a way to know ahead of time.

    And many domestic ducks don't get broody.

    My Delilah was a wonderful mama!
    She hatched 10.
    7 made it to adulthood. 4 hens and 3 drakes.
    I re-homed the drakes and kept the hens.
