    Hi there

    Our muscovy hatched out 3 baby ducklings this morning, but its now night time here in Australia and we haved moved them to a safer spot away from our drake and chickens. But she is now not sitting on her ducklings. It's only been about 20 mins but I'm getting worried. What should we do? Thanks

    Update - I ended up having to move the ducklings inside and put them under a light for the night. Is there any chance we could give them back to the mother to raise and if so how would we tackle this? Please will someone answer

    Can you bring mom in too? she may just need some quite time with her ducklings maybe put them in a quite room with low light and see how she acts with them. It maybe hard to put them back. Sometimes they will take them back sometimes not .
