For the past month our buff duck hen has been broody. I went away at the beginning of August and when I returned she had made herself very comfortable on a nest of 10 duck eggs. And my, was she broody. She would sit there and quack at the top of her lungs, her duck bill wide open. I referred to it as shouting and asked her to please use her indoor voice. Like clockwork, every day, twice a day, momma would leave the nest to relieve herself, grab a bite to eat, and return to the nest.
