To possibly 20 grandchildren. Hopefully less, my little Louie is currently incubating 20 ducklings right now. Lol.



Update: for some reason momma duck stopped sitting on them and they died. :( And there were only about 12 eggs. But they were mating again the other day, so maybe they will have more.

Aww once they hatch you won't mind so much if its 20 hehe. They are cute till they get a bit older and into mischief : P

My Aunt used to have ducks and chickens on her farm and every time those chicks and duckings got older but not fully grown yet they wasn't shy at all . One duckling would peck at my ankles and one would follow me everywhere. The chicks was starting to fly so when you went into the barn you literally had to watch out or one would fly right into you LOL. Fun times fun times.

Omg they are messy. But kinda fun too. We originally had 3. One either ran away or got killed. We don't know. But we have Shaniqua and Louie left. Shaniqua is a boy and Louie is a girl. Go figure. Lol.

Awww, maybe you should look into making or buying an incubator for the poor ducklings-to-be, or could you foster the eggs? I had a young momma cockatiel who wouldn't sit her eggs, so I fostered her eggs to a more experienced set of parents.

I think that means Mama Duck isn't happy with her surroundings.....or her food, or something. My birds did that because of stress. We had cats.

My grandpa tried incubating them when we discovered she'd stopped sitting but it was too late. If she does lay again we will incubate them.

They have a pond all to themselves, 2 acres of land and a big coop if they want it. I don't know what else to give them that would be less stressful. They also get fed pretty well. Duck feed plus fruits and veggies.
