    I have two broody ducks on one nest, happily sharing it for the past few weeks. I didn't want to interfere too much so left them to it. Ducklings are due in a few days but now worried that the ducklings maybe at risk of being killed by the other broody duck. Will they share nicely or will I have to separate? Maybe just have one mum? I don't have the space for 3 separate partitions as they're already separate from the rest of the flock. Actually considering hand rearing all the ducklings so they're safe but feel sad for the mummy ducks! I will be selling them on eventually anyway. [​IMG]
    Just wondered if anyone else had experienced similar or had any advice.
