    Nothing you need to do. She will take care of everything. Just don't let any of the other birds harass her or keep laying eggs under her.
    Good luck![​IMG]

    Can you take the eggs and put infertile ones so she can hatch some babies?

    mule ducks are sterile so their eggs arent fertile, you will need to buy duck eggs, or use duck eggs if you have other ducks, if you want her to hatch babies
