I have had chickens for years but this is the first time I have had ducks. I have a couple of females and one went broody almost a month ago and the other has went broody in the last couple of weeks. They get along fine together and even are side by side in the nest. Some of the ducklings are hatching and I have three as of today. There is around twenty eggs under the two from what I can tell. My question is should I take the one that was first to nest out after about ducklings hatch and leave the second with the rest of the eggs or leave them all in the nest. I am afraid it will get crowded and cause issues as the area is small. Or should I leave them all together till they hatch all they want to?
