    I boughthink 7 muscovy ducklings 2 week old and the adults too. I brought them home and put in barn. Problem is the mummy duck doesn't want anything to do with the babies and is pecking at them if they go near her. What to do? And will she lay again?

    Good luck with your ducklings - for duck specific questions you may like to post on the "duck thread."
