    My father frightened a mallard off her nest and she hasn't come back yet , do you think I can get one of my chickens( she's a broody!) to hatch them out?

    Yes she can but it is illegal to take wild mallard eggs. How long has she been away? She will most likely return

    I think she should return but someone with more experience should chime in
