Hello there and welcome to BYC!

Drumstick Diva X2 Some first time mommas are not very good at being motherly. Stop by our Duck section for more help with this too. Lots of knowledgeable duck keepers there...https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks

Good luck and I hope you can save the rest and get this figured out!

Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! X3 on post in the Duck forum. If she is a bad mother you will need to care for them yourself if you want to save them. You might want to post pictures of her nesting spot etc... it could be the ducklings are falling or getting out of the nest and not able to get back in.
