So, my muscovy started laying about 2 weeks ago. I picked up the first week's eggs since some were small. After 1 mishap, (she made a bee line to the chicken coop one morning and I found her in their nest box where she laid her egg) I then put 2 eggs in her nest and left her in the run the next day until she had lain her next one. I want her to go broody so I started leaving them in the nest and marking them with the date. There are now 6 eggs in the nest and this evening when I put the pair up she went in to sit on the nest. She only stayed on it for about 30 minutes. She is not setting during the day, though I constantly find one or another of the chickens setting on them along with the occasional chicken egg . My questions: Does this behavior mean she may go broody soon ( I know they typically lay a large #)? The temps have been dipping into the 50's (I hate FL), will this cause a problem with fertility in the eggs that are out there? I am thinking of setting up a broody nest for one of my chickens to sit on some scovy eggs, I'm not sure how fertile they will be since she just started laying, any tips for having a hen brood duck eggs? Thanks!
