Hi there, I have a female Pekin that has been laying eggs. She had a Welsh Harleguin Drake as a "boyfriend" for 2-3 months, that would've put him at about 5 months old. I didn't see them breeding, but she has built a nest of about 7 eggs and has been laying on it most the time. We lost the beautiful drake to a preditor last week. She was nesting at that time. Is there a chance these are fertile eggs? She is extremely protective, and "hollars" a lot if she is disturbed. She will range during the day. I don't want to take her eggs or disturb them or her. What should I do? Will she be able to hatch the eggs on her own? Temperature has been 50-60 at night, and 70- 80 during the day. thanks for the advise....... P.S. I do want to raise the ducklings, and im also in need of another drake.
