I have a khaki campbell duck sitting for the first time. She is only 8 months old so this is her first round of babies. She has 8 eggs under her, 7 I know for sure are fertile and have live babies inside. I thought 2 were rotten but come to find out the ba is are alot further along than others. I can tell some of the eggs are quite a bit further ahead than others so my question is......is it normal for ducks to have eggs hatch days apart?? I will be keeping an eye on her to make sure she doesnt abandon the nest before everyone hatches. My second question is should I seperate the males? She has been raised with 3 males and there is one of them that has claimed her as HIS so the other 2 boys don't try to mate her. Will the other males try to kill the babies? I'm thinking I should seperate her and the babies before hatching. The boys guard the door and watch out for her all day while she sits. They are very protective of her, as they should be. This may all seem like common knowledge but this is the first duck I've ever had to hatch her own babies. I've raised 3 groups of ducks from babies but I'm new to the situation at hand. Any advice is very much appreciated!!!
