    I have two rouen ducks one male one female and a male Pekin. Today I found 2 cracked eggs in the bedding area of their pen. I was not expecting this and have yet to do my research. I am wanting to hatch them all and raise the babies. Should I just let her hatch them her self or should I get an incubator? And if so how soon do I put them in an incubator?

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    I don't know a thing about ducks. You will do best if you post this question in our Ducks section and chat with our Duck experts...https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks

    Good luck and I hope you can get this all figured out soon! :)

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about ducks (although I've had a few), but I have to admit that ducklings are the ultimate in cute. Definitely post on our duck link that TwoCrows has left you with and take advantage of our duck experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in hatching your duck eggs.
