    My muscovey has started her small pile of eggs, she isn't setting yet and it is supposed to go down to 10 degrees tonight, what do I do, if they freeze, they won't hatch when she is ready, her friend is sitting on 10 chicken eggs and 2 duck eggs, didn't realize she was broody, until I took most of the eggs,

    so do I put them under the other duck, do I bring them in, and wait till she decides to set, argh, I want a couple of baby ducks this year.

    They should have several clutches each year. Yours are laying their first clutch for the year. Personally, I am collecting all eggs for us to eat and sell. I will allow them to lay on a future clutch when it gets warmer.
