(I wasn't sure if I should put this in "other fowl", "hatching", "raising babies" or what so please excuse me if this is the wrong place.) I have a duck who is laying every day in a nest she made by the gazebo. I can tell she is wanting to set. She stands by the nest and chases away cats and stuff when they get close and she is always trying to set on her nest without interuption. The thing is, there is only 1 egg in her nest because we take them up. I don't really need a bunch of ducks, but if I put two or three chicken eggs in there do you think she would set? Would she take care of them once they hatched or run them off? She is a few years old and has had many clutches before. I know with it getting into the cold weather and her not setting reguarly there is a high chance the egg won't hatch, but if she's going to go through all that trouble I would like to get some babies from it if at all possible.
