i have 4 pet mallard ducks, 2 hens and 2 drakes. my question is how do i get them to hatch ducklings? i know one of the hens lays an egg in her coupe once in a while but she never pays any attention to it after she lays it. is there a reason for this or is there anything i should be doing to get her to incubate the egg? i'm not even sure if it's fertile. i know very little about this aspect of raising ducks. any advice would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
