    Our place has been hit by an earthquake twice within a month. I'm wondering if my ducks eggs are going to okay to hatch

    From what I have seen, earthquakes do the most damage to larger things that are brittle rather than flexible. In the case of the eggs, as long as they are not up where they could fall, and they are in a soft nest, that ought not to be a problem as far as minor earthquakes go. The bigger risk is with a more significant quake that could bring the structure down on to the nest, killing mother and eggs.
