    I have four female welsh harlequins and a male Indian runner. One of the ducks went broody a couple weeks ago and started sitting. The other ducks got her to sit on their eggs, and she's got eight eggs but now no one is laying and two other sit with her in the coop, all right beside each other. Should I seperate them? I have an extra coop I can put the male and other WH that isn't sitting, but what about my three Moms? Should I seperate the first Mom? The other two don't have eggs under them. If I move her and her eggs, will that be bad? I'm mostly concerned about the others hurting the ducklings or eggs and each other. I didn't expect them to all go broody on me.
