We have three species of ducks at my home. Indian Runner, Muscovey and Roen. There have been quite a few ducks raised, surely.
The picture below is an Indian Runner mamma and a Roen mamma. They both share the raising of their babies, never far apart from each other. They sure are protective of their little ones, and make a very strange quacking noise with their mouths very wide open when you come near.
We have 4 other Muscovey hens sitting on eggs now too. They should be hatching any day now. It is fun to watch the habits of mothers and their babies. Have a wonderful day, great life. Cindi
Two Muscovey's sitting in a tiny little house, hatching their young, very tightly squeezed in, but that is how they seem to like it:
