Ok I have a runner duck that has chosen that this would be a good time to hatch out a clutch of eggs. She has been sitting on about 10-12 eggs for the past month. She chose a pile of leaves under the porch way back at the back. I have been crawling under the porch to check on her and the eggs. Today I have heard some peeping coming out from under her. Don't know how many have hatched. So here is the question. It is November and I live in the mountains of Virginia, I wish she would have asked me first if this was a good time but she chose to hide her intentions from me until it was too late, anyway my question is what do I do now? Do I let her try to mother them or should I take them and place them under a heat lamp. Should I pen up momma duck with them? I have experience with chickens but nothing really with ducks.
