I am new to this site and new to raising ducks. Started with a flock of 13. I have 3 hens and a drake of each, Khaki Campbells, Welsh Harlequins and a Hybrid from Metzler Farms with one extra WH hen. My flock just started laying earlier this month. They are locked down in their "hut" at night to be released in the morning and have free run of my "ranch" with lake during the day. I do not play with them and allow them to be free ducks. Earlier this week I released the ducks and only 12 came out. I gave the last one an hour our so and she did not leave the hut on her own. I walked her out so I could collect eggs. She seemed as though she wanted to stay with her egg. She has not acted the same since. She does not stay with the flock always and a couple of nights had to be brought home. Last night she didn't make it at all at lock-down and was missed. Found her this morning hunkered in the grass along the lake bank. My question, could she be broody and can ducks get depressed if their eggs are taken? It would make sense to me. Any advice? Thanks.
