    How do you know when they are ok to eat? What’s difference between breakfast eggs and actually baby in the eggs!

    So is it up to her to sit or not to sit ? Why did she decide to neglect them ?

    If she was to sit on them how long does that last until they hatch?

    Eat em, duck eggs are excellent eating. The won't have ducklings in them unless they are incubated. Most hatchery type breeds of ducks have been bred over the years to lay rather than to set. If she were inclined to set her eggs she wouldn't start setting on them until she's laid a batch of 10-12 or so. They do this so they'll all hatch at once.

    How do you incubate them lol that sounds like a lot of work ? So do these two eggs have a chance still or no ?
