Hi I have been researching like a crazy person but can't seem to get a straight answer! I have a broody hen sitting on six call duck eggs. They are due to hatch on Saturday and I can't wait, so super excited! I have a few questions that I am hoping someone can help me with as I have never hatched a thing in my life... 1. Do storms affect unhatched eggs? We have had a thunderstorm every day for the past week and I was told not to expect my ducks to hatch.... 2. How will I know when they are hatching, will my hen act differently? 3. Will the ducklings just crawl out from under the hen when they have arrived? I read that the hen can suffocate them and I don't want that to happen 4. How long should I let her sit on the eggs for after the due date? A little bit of info for you When I obtained the eggs I moved my broody hen to a secure location so she is on her own and in a safe dark coop that is off the ground about about 10-15 cm. Thank you in advance for any help.
