    ok I know there's a couple of people on here that have their pekin ducks to go broody had had some that have been hatched by moma duck, so i need tips on to get mine to go there!!! she has made a nest the first time and the dog got into it, then he made a 2nd nest and I took them to put in the bator, she didnt lay anymore in that nest, so now she made the 3rd nest that has 7 eggs in it. so anybody out there do anything "special" or you just let nature take its course?? i read somewhere that it has been breed out of them, but anybody that has please help. im itching just to take them and put in the bator, but already have 8 in there from her!!!!!!

    I'm going to leave my pekins eggs in their nest this spring and see If they will set. They have never set before but they just turned a year old. I hope yours will set for you!!!
