  1. Hi!
    I'll have 10 (only slightly muddy) duck eggs from my crested and double crested Pekins that can ship Fri morning.

    I have crested girls with a non-crested drake.

    I've never hatched ducks before. Are they any different then chickens? Any temperature differences, etc?

    I have a broody hen, could she hatch them? : >
     
  6. Hi Christy! Same incubating temps as for chickens. 28 days instead of 21 and for artificial incubation, higher humidity is recommended.

    My broody Frizzle girls hatched oodles and oodles of these duck eggs last season with no problems.

    I don't know much about them, but I want them with the cresting. So I assume most will be crested when born? I noticed you said something about some being with non crested.
     
  8. Hi Christy! There is something about breeding crested to crested that causes some of them to die in the shell (I don't know that to be fact), so it's recommended to breed crested to non-crested.
    The ducklings should hatch half crested and half non-crested.
