I have a Muscovy that has been sitting on eggs for over 5 weeks (that aren't going to hatch.) I got some ducklings and I thought she would be thrilled. First I took out the eggs and put the 4 day old ducklings in the place. She came back and wasn't at all interested in the ducklings, but was devastated about her eggs. So after she left I put a couple of the eggs back and she went back to sitting. I tried again, but this time I took just two ducklings and put them in straw and feathers from her nest - rubbed the smell all over them and put them in - still nothing. She wasn't interested - seemed confused. I would like to give it one more try - does anyone have any advice? If it doesn't work, I will just take away the eggs and raise the ducklings myself. Thanks!!
