Can hens hatch duck eggs? I'm thinking I might get some for her next year.

Hi Sue. Heard a sad story of a hen that hatched duck eggs then drowned when they all took to the water and she went in to save them. So I guess the answer is yes, but don't give them access to swim.

Great idea Sue, just avoid the water problem. Dotty is obviously so mad keen to be a mummy so I think it's a good idea.

She's certainly keen to be a mummy, but with her past history, she'll probably murder them all!!!!!

At least, if she's so keen on being broody, she wouldn't mind a 4- week incubation period. Or with luck, it might put her off the idea for good!
