    Our duck has laid 15 eggs so far, my question is, how many eggs will she lay before sitting on them full time?

    Welcome to BYC, it's nice to meet you! What types of ducks do you have?

    As for your question, if she is the type of duck to go broody, she should start sitting soon. :fl

    Sadly, I have no duck experience but 15 eggs sounds like a good number for her to 'cover'. What breed of ducks are you raising?

    Thanks for joining us!

    I only have one Rouen, so let me see if I can find someone with Rouen experience to comment.
