Sorry for the late reply - I have been out of the country and your question seems to have slipped through the cracks while I was away. The best way to hatch eggs without an incubator is to have a broody hen. This can be the duck herself or it could be a chicken that has gone broody. Either will work - though watching a hen taking care of a batch of ducks can be amusing, especially when it rains.
