    My duck hen has laid almost 3 dozen eggs and I'm wondering when she'll go broody? I've left the eggs alone in her nest. I just count them every few days.

    Quote:She is a Magpie & Khaki cambill mix, but looks like a black Swede. She'll be a year old next month.

    My runners go broody whenever, and it's not a big broody, I don't think they would hatch anything.
