    I found a nest of 9 duck eggs today in the chicken house. They're in the corner behind a laying box. Do you think the duck will set on them? Are ducks good setters?

    A lot depends upon the breed of duck. Some are excellent at setting and raising ducklings, some not so good, and some rarely go broody.
