I have 4 drakes and several chickens, all hens. The drakes are approx 6 months 
old. I purchases them at the same time I bought 6 other chickens to add to my 
hen house. My question is, can a male duck fertilize a hen's egg?  I am 
getting a lot of fertilized eggs and none of the chickens I purchases are 
roosters (at least not to my knowledge).
