    phoebs, I think several people have had broody hens hatch their ducky babies.

    I have not entered into the wild, woolly arena of hatching yet. Don't have the nerves for it, and I tend more toward adopting adult abandoned ducks since raising my first brood of runners.

    But I enjoy seeing others' little treasures. So, I look forward to your photo uploads soon.[​IMG]

    I've had several hens hatch out ducklings. I had better luck with the hens hatching them out than the ducks. I had a silkie hen who rolled 3 duck eggs under the chicken coop and hatched all 3. It was so cute.
