I've searched Stickies & this forum for some basic info & haven't found my answers. 1. Will pekins set? 2. How many are a clutch? 3. How do they decide where to set? 4. How many eggs before they'll set, if ever. I'm. New 2 ducks & got this mating pair 2 weeks ago. They are in a poultry yard w guineas, gamefowl, young chicks & peas. They have a hay-filled stall to sleep in @ night. This pair gives me an egg/day. She's decided to lay consistently in a depression outside the stall every day for the last 3 days since I'm not picking them up. (Having see them breed daily, I now know why the drake flops off. TMI? This boy needs to "close the lipstick" a little quicker.Ewwww.) Since she's now laying in the same place, is she creating a nest? How many will she lay before she sets? Will she ever set? I'd really not incubate them. I want her to do this naturally. Otherwise I've wasted 3 days of eating eggs. TIA for any info!
