    I have a pair of ducks a male Cayuga and a female Rouen they are aroung 10 months old each and the female has began to lay eggs they mate in their pool and since they started mating the female has started to lay more eggs and sit on the nest longer than usual with the male usually staying closeby is she old enough to incubate them or should I take them? I dont have an incubator and the only chance to hatch her eggs if they are fertile is with her or a broody chicken wich i dont have any wanting to set at the time what should I do
