    My bantam hen wanted to sit and I didnt have any fertile chicken eggs for her so I gave her three duck eggs....she sat faithfully and this past Thursday one hatched out...we moved her, the baby and the other two eggs so that they were away from everything and on Friday the other two hatched....mama doesnt even realize that she is raising baby ducks....they are soooo stinking cute!!!!!
