I have my first pair of breeding ducks and while I know my ducks are mating and producing fertile eggs, the hen has yet to set on the nest at all. Because of my inexperience with ducks I simply don't know what to expect. I let the eggs lay in a pile until 8 eggs were accumulated and then ate them. The chicken hens also up until 2 days ago lay eggs into the same pile. The ducks began laying on their own nest 2 days ago and pulling feathers to do so.. With this information, can anyone make sense of what would be the best move to promote the hen to sit on the nest? Thank you for reading.
