    I know this is Chicken Behaviors, but my duck has gone super broody. Her last nest failed, probably due to the heat. Now she has 2 nests going. She switches between them during the day. I doubt that will help them grow, but what do i do? Has anyone else's birds done this?

    I don't know anything really about ducks, but, could you move all the eggs into 1 nest?

    She has 8 in one and 7 in the other. She can't fit 15 eggs beneath her. [​IMG]

    I would just get rid of one nest so the other one has a chance or have another duck or chicken sit on them.
