Khaki Campbell duck sitting on eggs?

    Hi, we have a Khaki Campbell duck sitting on eggs in their duck house. This is the first duck we have had sit for more than 4 days and in a 'normal' safe place. The other ducks seem to be laying in her nest and then she goes back on it. I know it is early days!! But I'm so excited but trying not to get my hopes up. I know that their reputation for sitting is not good but surely some of them have to be good at. Would appreciate ANY advice! Have three drakes that house at night with them.

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    You may want to mark the eggs she is sitting on and remove ones layed at a later time

    Greetings from Kansas, capduf, and [​IMG]! Happy you joined our community! I know less about ducks than most so I'll leave that to the experts. I wish you well!
