    Hey guys I have a question, my pekin Duck is currently sitting on eggs right now and the eggs should hatch around June 2, current situation is she's free roaming my 1/4 acre property. How should I set a pen up for her to keep the babies at? Do I need a heating lamp if she's there providing the heat? What food should I feed?

    I don't think you'll need a heat lamp - but they all need to be kept safe from predators.
