My chickens are 19 weeks old and haven't started laying yet. I was wondering if I bought some ducks eggs (runners ) in the near future will they sit and hatch them or not. Are they to young to want to go broody? Will this completely throw off there time that they would have started to lay? Hubby really thinks they girls will hatch them but I just don't know. Should i just try to incubate the duck eggs? Any knowledge on this would be appreciated.
