I have a gold laced Wyandotte that has been sitting on 5 duck eggs for 2 1/2 weeks. Everything was going fine until I found a broken egg on friday. I just found another broken egg. She almost never leaves the nest but when she does other chickens go in the chicken house. Is she crushing the eggs or are they eating them?

Find a seprate box and put stuff in it with food and water and let her stay in your garage, basement, or net off a section for her in the coop.

I made her a spot. She was super mad at first but she is calm now. Just laying on the eggs. She is stinky though. She was laying on the eggs including the broken one. I would have washed her off but I didn't want to kick her out of broody mode.

Unfortunately all the eggs did not make it. We found another broke and 1 missing. The last egg exploded when we checked on it. There was a baby in there but it had died.
