    December 30th I found an egg! I'm still excited and scared, I've had them since they were a week old. But I have two white pekin ducks .. Both were given to me, they're siblings. What happens if I let the eggs hatch? Will they be deformed? Or will they die? I was told that if I didn't want that to happen to collect their eggs daily. [​IMG][/IMG]

    They can produce the problem starts after 3 or 4 straight lines
    but it is never a good idea to let siblings cross [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC. The only problem will arise if both are crested. The crested gene in ducks can be lethal if passed on by both parents.
