    We have 2 female Rouen's and one male, we would like to have baby's but we are not sure whether to keep them or to sell them,, We think that selling them will be better, but still not sure whether to remove the eggs and incubate them, or to let the eggs hatch and let mom duck be a mom duck… we are afraid that when we take the ducklings away from mom that it would be sad for mom and baby…

    It could well be. I know Romy really grieved when Shelly died.
