Hey everyone Please excuse my lack of knowledge on this subject and I have tried to look up info on the internet with no luck so I figured you guys would be able to help me out. As you may know I have 3 Mallards, 2 hens and a drake. How can you tell if eggs are fertilized? I've seen the term "broody" and I'm assuming this is when a hen has eggs she is sitting on and attempting to hatch. How do you know when this has happened? I've seen my drake at least attempt to mate with my hens (not sure if he's actually doing anything or not) I'm confused about this also, it's late November and I would think not the time for ducklings so are they just practicing haha or is it a dominance thing? This is their first year, they're almost 5 months old now. Thank you for your help!
