    Hi everyone,

    It has been a long time since I have been on here and I need some advice now.
    We just noticed that 1 of our ducks is hatching ducklings tonight. Do we need to separate her and the babies from the other ducks or will they be ok? We have 16 ducks total.

    Thank you in advance.

    I would separate them - ducks are unpredictable when it comes to ducklings - sometimes even especially first-time duck moms can get aggressive with littles.
