Duck Eggs

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just a couple days ago noticed my ducks had made a nest in the pasture well tonight we watered and the nest was under water does this mean the eggs are no good?

Water can carry bacteria through the shell into the egg.  Are you asking about their hatching viability or eating?  I would not eat eggs that were under water.

I think they might, actually.  @Lacrystol  any thoughts on this?
