I have a broody Muscovy hen that has put in her time and diligently sat on her eggs for weeks. She decided to make her nest in the chicken yard in an empty water trough. She layed about 12 eggs before deciding to go broody. Being as though it is VERY difficult to move a broody hen let alone candle the eggs, I wasn't able to move her and her nest. However, I was able to finally take a look at her eggs while she left to eat, drink and take a dip in the pool. Well, lo and behold, I found that most of the eggs are duds. Her scheduled hatch date is this week but I don't think that any of the eggs will hatch. I have a few new ducklings and a few more hatches scheduled for this week. I was wondering, if I could slip 2 or 3 newly hatched ducklings under her and fool her into thinking that she hatched the babies. Has anyone ever tried this? Do you think that it will work? I feel so sorry for her and at the same time, I want to reward her for being a good broody girl. It's not her fault the eggs were duds. Any suggestions?
