Hi last night was day 26 and i candled my 8 duck eggs some had they beaks in the air cell and some didnt this morning i could hear them chirpping but not very much they dont wabble around much and only make noises once in a while. so my ? is how long before i see them pip the shell and when would i have to help them if need to?


 

 

i have four cats, love to farm and be around all kinds of animals have raised duck and geese before but its been a long time! my little cat is obsessed with the duck eggs!
I have seven ducks right now! 2 anconas and 4 mallards! I love my ducks!

It depends on the type of duck. Most ducks take 28 days, but Muscovies take 35.
