Ancona Duck Eggs Incubated by Broody Chickens
Yes, a chicken can incubate duck eggs.




Bantam Hen Successfully Hatches Duck Eggs

You can see an unhatched green Ancona duck egg under the hen. Four ducklings hatched. Duck eggs take 4 weeks to incubate. Chicken eggs take 3 weeks to incubate.

These ducklings are 1 day old. They are happy with their chicken mom.



2-Day-Old Duckling with Hen

There are more ducklings under this broody hen. She is a good mother.

It is funny to watch a hen when she sees her "chicks" going in water to swim. She must think they have lost their minds.



Broody Hen with Duck Eggs

A nice video of Ancona duck eggs being put under a broody hen from Kristi in Bluffdale, Utah. Her hen is a Silver Lace Wyandotte. At first the hen does not want to be disturbed, then she sweetly tucks the eggs under her. The video is 2 minutes, 46 seconds. The end is the best.




Broody Hen with Duckling

The photo with the duckling under a mamma hen is from Cynthia at Elderflower Farm in Talent, Oregon. Yes, chickens can hatch duck eggs!



Dominique Hen with Her Flock of Ducklings

Quicktime Movie: Dominique hen with ducklings. It is 2 seconds long. She hatched these eggs! She may be confused by how they look. The movie is from Valerie in San Mateo, California.

5-Day-Old Ducklings

This photo is from Allison in Citrus Heights, California. She said: "They are perfect."
