You should be proud! Your chicks are too cute and they are big! Congrats on the duck eggs too.

Don't worry about your broody hen, I have heard of some hens taking care of her adult chicks up to five months. And then only because the the adult chicks themselves started to lay eggs or started to breed if they roosters. Even after that some mothers will stay close to her adult daughters for life in the flock, some will even go broody together and raise their chicks. This might happen to you next summer.
