I think I could be the poster girl for not letting your birds do whatever they want. My goose was broody for a long time so I ordered her a pair of goslings (she's a lone goose so her eggs weren't going to hatch). Meanwhile a couple of ducks went broody together and shared a nest next to her. By the time the goslings got here she wasn't broody anymore so we've been slowly trying to get her to accept them. So one day we see a little duck running around by itself. Apparently everyone wanted to be broody but no one wanted to be Mom. We have another broody duck and when I checked on her today I was so excited to see a little yellow fluff - and two black fluffs. We don't have black ducks and when I looked closer she had hatched out Three Chickens! I don't want her to drown them and I'm wondering if I can sneak them away and put in the three day old duckling?
