I have kept chickens for a few years but 6 months ago I was given a trio of Ducks.... Albert, Annie and Alice...
Well my ducks got on very well and I now have my two girls both sharing a huge nest of eggs which they have been incubating together constantly for nearly 4 weeks. They only ever leave for ten minutes at the most and only one at a time. Between them I think there are about 18 eggs!!!!
I decided a few weeks ago I was going to just let nature takes hold and not do anything to disturb the brooding mums to be but this is where my questions come......
Will they be ok being outdoors as their nests are just next to my pond in a corner of garden?
Do I need to get something to keep any ducklings safe or can I just totally let nature happen?
Any help and advice would be appreciated.... I feel like a grandma just waiting and not very prepared......
