Duck Dilemma

Ducks in survival won't breed either by egg chucking method or seed feeding method. I'm where there are no sheep and trying desperately to get duck sandwiches and arrows stocked up before running on. Is this the same as the cow breeding bug a few months ago?

Minecraft has ducks?

Seriously though, I assume you're referring to chickens. The most likely cause of your problem is that you already have too many mobs in the area you're attempting to breed in - I think the cap is something like 15 mobs per chunk or something like that, any attempts to exceed this cap via breeding will fail. Try breeding or hatching the chickens further away.

Also, trying to hatch chickens via throwing eggs is a relatively low chance anyway, so could just be bad RNG in that case.
