I have a friend that has 3 Muscovy Ducks and 3 Hens that are all broody and sitting right now. She has offered for them to sit on my Mandarin duck eggs that I am ordering. Can anyone advice me on how to proceed? Do I take the eggs they are sitting on and replace them with mine? Would it be good to split my eggs up between two or keep them all under one? Should I use the ducks or the Chickens or does it really matter? Thanks for any help!

The eggs that you're ordering, were you planning on incubating them artificially?

Depending on what bator you're using, you may want to naturally incubate them. And depending on what breed of chickens that are broody, depends on who I would put my bought eggs under
