Honestly I'd rather take them. I like to hand raise them. My muscovy hens are hatching as we speak. I don't know wether to take them or leave them. I feel bad for her taking them but on the other hand I saw what the drakes tend to do with the hens and babies when the hen brings them out. Also they seem to be a little more skittish when momma raises them. Thats just my experience. What do you guys do and why?
