Opinions please

post #1 of 4

Today I received shipped duck eggs, and two were smashed. Being a homeschool momma, we took them outside to examine the contents (my son's first experience with duck eggs). One was definitely fertile, and quite a bit developed, yikes! The other, well, I am struggling to tell if it is or not. Any opinions?

I am a bit worried about the viability with this hatch. This might be two disappointing hatches in a row...ouch ($$). Starting to get a bit discouraged.

Yes on the fertility and yikes on the development.  :frow to a fellow homeschooler. We homeschool as well. That is how we got into chicken keeping....lol  Shipped eggs can be costly and very disspointing. I hope you can at least get a couple hatchers.

Thanks smile.png

I was hoping to hatch a few Ancona Ducks, but of the eight eggs I received, I am down to six, and two of those are cracked. I am going to have to start taking vacations...and pick up hatching eggs on the return trip. wink.png
