One of our hens went broody and had been sharing a nesting area with some of the ducks.
... So today, she said we have ducks hatching under the hen.
Poor confused birds!
When we had quail, one would sit in all the eggs, while the others just laid em around her. She was all puffed out, tryin to cover all the eggs.
Now we have a chicken doin the same.
