My Buff Orp Female is currently broody over 8 eggs, Dates laid : 2nd, 3rd,4 th, 5th, 13th, 15th, 19th, 20th The first and last are a few weeks apart ! My first egg is due the 30th will they possibly hatch before then? What about if she abandons the younger eggs? Also ( ill post pics later) I have the ducks currently seperated from the goats due to goats stepping on eggs, do i need to seperate the males from my female when the ducklings hatch, well if they hatch???
