This is our first time with Pekin Ducks. She has laid 7-8 eggs in one place, but we don't see her sitting on them. How do you know if she's laid them to hatch or is just putting them in one place?

But it does happen. Actually, in my flock they go broody a lot but tend to abandon their nests. I usually see the nest being lined with feathers before they start to sit. If yours is going brood you will see a drastic change in her behaviour. Lots of disgruntled like quacks, head kind of jammed down and ready to strike. If you want to wait it out start numbering the eggs so you can pull some if she does decide to sit. Depending on her lucky number (whatever she decides to lay and sit on), you might want to cull taking the oldest ones first
