In a nut shell; one of my rouens started sitting on a ridiculous amount of eggs and then died at about six days in. I put another rouen in the pen and she took over. My daughter took five of the eggs and put under a chicken. At the beginning of the third week, I found a broken egg and embryo in the yard. The next day another. Then nothing. The hen hatched her eggs the 25th and my duck has hatched none. I changed her water for two days so I changed it today and poured out a dead duckling. What is going on with my hen and what should I do now?
