Two eggs hatched under Skippy, this was her first time going broody. She was all about sitting on those eggs. She hardly ever left the nest! It was Serious Business. Well, two eggs hatched 5 days apart. The first duckling left at a few days to get into a nest with another duck(who is sitting on chicken eggs). The second duckling wants to be with his/her sibling. So the broody duck will let both ducklings into the nest, bit during outside playtime, she nips at the younger duckling, kind of chasing it away. It just seems like no one is interested in parenting these ducklings. This is my first hatch ever, and it just seems....well, Skippy's mothering skills seem to be lacking...I'm not sure what I expect her to do is really what mother ducks actually do. She's just ignoring them, staying in her house, while they are getting into soeone else's nest. And like I said, she's setting on eggs so not much of a surrogate mom. They wander the coop alone and usupervised. The older one seems happy enough, but the younger one seems a little weaker and kind of sad. I brought the in the house and put them in a crate with a paint tray pool, food, waterer, and a Winnie the Pooh softy contributed by my son, with they snuggled a bit, but they BOTH seemed sad and lonely. Any advice? I imagined a whole different hatching experience here. Of course I want to just bring them in and mother them myself, but don't really know if that's best.
