Unfortunately our female wood duck fell victim to a raccoon one night last week.. I checked her next box after dealing with the predator and found 11 eggs. With no other female woodies or mandarins nesting I figured the next best thing would be one of the broody bar rock hens in the pen next door. I candled the eggs last week after finding them and only saw egg and yolk but today I checked and saw veins with some sort of mass forming so I'm hopeful it might be successful. Has anyone ever had success incubating duck eggs (particularly wood duck) under broody chickens or any advice to offer I'm new to this sort of thing any help would be great - Thanks
