I recently noticed that 1 by 1 my three ducks weren't coming out of their house for longer periods. I never stayed out there long, so each time I just figured one or two were in there laying their eggs. Well the last week or so, all 3 have been in the house all day. I went into their house to peek today and there are two nests in there...16 eggs in one, two ducks are sharing this nest and 15 eggs in the other, one duck is manning this one. I candled most of them and they range from newly veining to the baby duck pushing up on the air cell. What will happen when some of the ducklings hatch, but the other eggs are still in the nest? Will I need to go in and get the less developed eggs and put them in my bator? Or will the moms keep sitting on the eggs til all hatch? I think duck #3 who wasn't broody when the first two were, was still laying her eggs in both nests. Also, when/if these hatch, will I need to remove the 2 drakes (one is the dad and the other is only 4 months old) or will the moms protect the babies?
