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?

Is the adult duck the ducklings' mom? If not, it's unlikely that she will take care of them and you will have to brood them for a few weeks. You'll find good advice in the Ducks section and here:
