Will the mallard nest hatch in summer?

PhanieJune 26, 2012

I have a mallard and swedish blue who both have been with eachother for the last 4 years (they are "free range" with a pond and have escaped foxes and Racoons in the high Rocky Mountians) and now the mallard has made a nest in my flower garden it is now June and now I am wondering if they may hatch or not. I am wondering if she is having babies so late becuase it freezes until about june 16th arpound here. She is taken care of them, but I am wondering is it to late for ducklings?
