I have a duck that is a little over a year old now. She has attempted to hatch several clutches of eggs to no avail. My drakes had gotten killed by, I am assuming, coyotes last Nov/Dec. Therefore, eggs aren't fertilized... Unless the wild mallards that frequent the tanks have come into my yard which I seriously doubt. I had intended to get some hatching eggs and put under her and replace the ones she laid, but she started sitting before I could get them and it was too late. My question is if I were to get some day old ducklings and put them under her, would she accept them? I just feel so bad for her and would love to see her be a mother finally. I think she would do an awesome job. If anyone can help I would appreciate it so much. Thank you!
