    I have a white pekin and she's layed several eggs. I've left them in her nest. She wasn't setting at all, at first. Now I've noticed that in the mornings she does set some. Does she need to be setting all the time for the eggs to be successful? Or can she just set sometimes? I'm new to all of this and would really like some help/input.

    From what I understand (and I may be wrong) a duck won't set on them until she has a full clutch but they should be ok also from what I understand (again I may be wrong) you won't always see her setting on them when she does. There are others on here who know more about ducks then I do though, I am brand new to ducks, mine haven't even hatched yet. so please take this for what it is worth. Good luck either way!
