    I have question about my two Rouen ducks, I have seen the drake mating with the hen and she has already laid 11 eggs. Now I have yet to see her sitting on the nest and it has been about a week and a half. So I took them out and saw they were sitting in water. The next day she already had another nest in a different area with 1 eggs, so I think she will lay more, my question is, is this to early and why won't she sit on them? I am new to this and I would really like to see ducklings, so would my kids and I don't have the answers that they are looking for. Can anyone steer me in the right direction or give me some advise?
