Hello everyone! I am new to raising Pekin ducks and have gotten a lot of good information from this site. So, thank you! I actually did not plan on raising ducks but our Jill decided to go broody! I read that Pekin ducks are not good brooders, so when she started staying on her nest I told my husband she probably would not keep at it. Well, she has! It is getting cold now here in West Virginia so I am concerned about the ducklings - if the eggs should hatch. She is VERY touchy, actually quite mean, when it comes to her nest so I can only imagine what she would be like with ducklings. Since it is getting in the low 40's or upper 30's at night, I should take the ducklings from her when they hatch, right? How would you suggest I do that? Do ducks usually start sitting this late in the year? Thank you!
