    OK we are at day 27 I think. She is still sitting on her eggs. I have not candled them and have pretty much left her alone. SHe has come out for food, drink but on the whole I don't think she has been off for more than a 1/2hour at a time.

    They have a big house and I can fence her off form the drakes at night would this be a good idea from now on? If they hatch do should I lock her in with them?

    You dont count day 1 as the first day an egg was laid. Day one would be when she stopped laying and was sitting the entire clutch of eggs. If this is indeed day 27, you need to candle the eggs. BE CAREFUL incase there is a stinker in them. At day 27 you arent over due since lockdown would be day 25 and they can hatch anytime in the next 3 to 5 days after that.
