what kind? I have my first 5 from my own pekins that were just ducklings themselves last year.
May I ask, how many ducks you have , the drake/hen ratio, how often they lay? do you set all of your eggs you collect? or do you save some for eating? How is your luck with hatching eggs? I feel like when I candle them I see nothing. Also if your not supposed to wash the eggs, (which I don't) then how are you supposed to see whats going on inside the egg? Mine are dirty so I can hardly tell if its a shadow..lol.
Sorry I'm new and love to hear from pros
I am no where near a pro.
My current flock consists of 8 chickens, a pair of black cayuga ducks and one male and 3 female ancona ducks. I would like to add a pair of turkeys and 2 more cayuga females this year.
I just built a coolerbator so I am hoping for a good hatch rate.
This year I plan to incubate most of my duck eggs.
To remove the dirty you can soak them in water for a couple minutes and then rinse them off. I wouldn't do much more than that.
