    I just found my first broody duck today. I hadn't been out there in a day or two (had my sister taking care of them) and I walk out to collect eggs since you know I hadn't done that in a day or two and I found a little broody swedish duck hen!!! she is sitting on four eggs!!! I'm so excited. I'm just going to let her brood I'm really not worried if she hatches any because I have like 40 of their eggs hatching Thurs and more to go in.... so I'm really not worried about that but I think its soo cool!!! I think I'll go and get pictures of her later. she plucked her breast feathers and everything. I tryed to put my hand under her and I thought that she was going to explode!!!
