Hi, All! I'm a new duck owner in southern NH. I just got my first 3 adult ducks (4 yrs old) about 4 weeks ago. They are mixed breed ducks, who I've named Martin, Charlotte and Abigail. Martin has just mated with Charlotte and/or Abigail so we have 15 eggs carefully ordered in a circle, which Abigail spends most of her time on. I found BackYardChickens.com while searching on line for information and tips. I'm a seasoned dog owner, brand new to ducks, but excited! I'm a consultant, working mostly in the Human Resources field, for small to mid-size businesses. My focus is improving organizational performance, staffing, employee relations, training/development and other H.R. activities. I'm anticipating ducklings in the next month or so and want to do well by them. The mom has taken control in keeping the eggs warm. Can you help me understand what I can do to help this to go smoothly and for the new ducklings to thrive? I hope that some time in the future I'll be able to help others. For now, I'm in learning mode and I appreciate any help. Thank you!
