We honestly didn't think our duck was going to hatch anything. We have a Runner and then a pair of Swededs. Well, the female Swede layed a huge nest of eggs but never sat on them - perfect for us. The Runner, Emily, on the other hand protected her nest like a dragon I have been checking on the eggs end yesterday saw that they were all hatching. I brought 2 inside because I said my girls could keep 2 and they were excited to watch them hatch. However, Emily has 6 with her that are hatched. What do I do? She doesn't allow the other ducks in the duck house which is fine but the house is a bit off of the ground. Do I put duckling food out? What do I do for water? And, what the heck do I put around the bottom of the fencing so they won't get out? Or, should I move Mom and babies into the garage in a kiddie pool with fence around it (which is how Mom was raised). Lastly - whomever told me last year that Runners rarely go broody is on my poop list!
