    I have a buff duck who is now sitting on her eggs, I'm going to let her hatch them. Do I count from the time she sits on them or when the last one was laid? And how many days does it take a buff duckling to hatch? Thank you for advise.[​IMG]

    You count from the time she begins to sit full time other than to get up and eat ,drink, bathe and poop it's 28-30 days. Like if she started brooding today full time tomorrow would be day one.
