    My pekin is now up to about 12-14 eggs in her nest.... every morning she is sitting on it. She gets up covers it up and goes off free ranging.

    A night she beds down on the nest... Will she ever just stay on the darn thing?

    Being a Pekin duck, likely not. Most of the strains have had the broody bred out of them. Sometimes one will set, sometimes one will start but not finish, but usually, they won't even give it a thought.
