    I'm looking for some advice. I have one of my muscovies sitting on three turkey eggs. I know a lot of people hatch a lot of species under other species, but I've yet to see anyone have a duck raise poults. I know poults can be particularly fragile at a young age so I'm now wondering whether to let her raise them or take them from her and raise them in a brooder?

    She is going to try to take them to water and make them swim. I would not allow her to raise them
