    How long for a full nest to hatch?

    My Indian Runner has been on 3 eggs, all were viable, I have seen all the signs when candling. The first hatched yesterday but there is no sign of the other two hatching. How long should I leave it before removing the eggs? Thanks for your help and advice

    HELP, call duck hatched. Didn’t absorb all of the yolk

    This is my first batch of call duck eggs. Started out w/ 12. Now only 2 have hatched. The first one looks completely fine. This little guy clearly didn’t absorb all the yolk and there’s a little clear string attached to the belly that goes to the egg. What do I do ? Is there any saving it. I’ve...

    Raging mallard drake

    My faithful little drake is an a-hole. He’s a wild Mallard (not protected in my country) that I raised after finding him as a day old baby in a busy road September 2023. He’s not mean to me but he persecutes one of my geese mercilessly. Maybe she’s a gander? He was hand raised alongside my two...

    Hi, I incubated 3 call duck eggs with my chicken eggs just to see if they were even fertilized. Well we candled all the chicks and duck eggs that didn’t hatch and it seemed there wasn’t anything in any of them. We went outside to crack open the eggs to identify why the eggs didn’t hatch...

    Hey there, I have a female buff duck, almost 2 years old, who recently has started acting strange.

    Broody duck has eggs of all different stages!!

    So my Aylesbury duck has been sitting on her eggs for almost 28 days now, and I only realised 15 days in that she had been laying the whole time. After candling the eggs I think I’ve got two out of six that are ready to pip but the rest still look quite behind as their air cell is quite small...
