I have a Swedish Hen and a Crested Drake. She started laying in late January/ early February. She had 18 eggs on her nest but just would not sit at all. My last duck i had laid 10 and sit just fine. I figured 18 was a little exessive. My chickens deicded since she wasnt going to sit on them they would. So i have 2 hens now sitting on 18 eggs. I am not quite sure what to do. This is her first year to lay. She is about 7 to 8 months old if that makes any kind of difference.
