One of our ducks went broody around the end of April, and I stopped gathering the eggs in her nest. Within a couple days, MANY other of our ducks were laying in that nest too. In 6-7 days she was sitting 22 eggs!!! I read around and learned to number the eggs and take the newest ones out. So I did that for a week. Then a second duck started sitting the nest with her!? The second on is doing a great job, and the first one is learning from her. We did have a couple days that a third duck was sitting the nest! Now the last few days there has not been any new eggs, and it's just back to the two (now watch tomorrow I'll go out and it's be three again or something ) I guess I'm asking, what do we do? Are they going to fight over ducklings when they start hatching? I know they are turning the eggs in the nest, and I know the eggs are alive and growing inside. One duck baths and eats well, they other doesnt' so much, and I've read about the eggs needing humidity. We plan to keep them separate from the rest the week before they should be hatching (last week of May?) and then keep them separate for 2-3 weeks afterwards. There is no way I can keep them totally in, but I'm hoping mom/s can call a stray duckling back inside the fence if they wander out (the other typically spend the day in the woods/swamp away from the pen). And then at night we plan to lock them in the house while the others are in the yard. So is this a good plan, and what do I do about 2 ducks sitting one nest? Thanks!!
