Hello and Good Morning, So I have about 12 ducks I currently have 3 broody ducks. One soon to hatch out eggs. But my other female ducks have been laying eggs and most times I can not get to them due to the fact I am unaware where they are laying. To make a long story short I've been finding eggs with no known broody duck laying on them. There are just random eggs scattered around. But latley I have been finding day old ducklings dead. It looks like they have just hatched out with no broody duck sitting on them. I'm curious its been so hot and humid out could it possibly be that they are developing without a broody duck and hatching ? I try to pick up as many eggs as I can find but yesterday was the 3rd 1 day old duckling that I found and there is no broody duck in that area. Can duck eggs develop and hatch if the outdoor conditions are right ?
