    should I put her and her mate together when im ready for her to sit? I have a bunch of ducks that all sleep together but I feel like they will bug her.

    well yes and no because sometimes the drake will peck her feathers out or harm the eggs so I recommend putting him in there for a week or so and seeing how he goes if all goes well than leave him there but if not take him out.
