question #1 I have noticed the last few days that in the nest boxes, one of the girls has started getting in it, as there is the bowl shape to it, as if she's been sitting and shaping it to her body, nesting. No egg though. Is this a sign that she is getting close to laying? they are 5 months old. question #2 how does the broody thing/hatching eggs go? Is it the same with chickens, where you collect the eggs then sneak them all under the chicken at the same time? or does the duck lay an egg each day, and then brood when she collects enough? If so, how do you know she's planning on collecting her own clutch for hatching. can someone explain the duck process of family planning to me, haha. thanks.
