I now have 2 males and 2 females pekins. They have a large pond, coop, etc. I did not have plans to collect the duck eggs I was thinking more along the lines of letting them sit on them and raise them... Do I have to wait for one of the females to go broody to do this? or if I leave the eggs will they naturally sit on them.. Wow that sounded really odd when I typed it. Sounded much better in my head. And how long do they take to hatch.
