Broody duck

duck brooding June 16

This morning I found one of the ducks sitting on 3 eggs in the duck run. She stayed put when all the other ducks went off to feed when the run was opened up. We have only once before had a broody duck and she tried to set up a nest outside the run. We couldn't let that continue as she would have had no protection against foxes. It's a different matter in the duck run so we have decided to let her continue with the eggs.
