    My call duck eggs finally arrived today! I'm letting them sit and settle for 12 hours before putting them into the incubator. Hopefully I get some ducklings out of these 16 eggs! [​IMG]

    The lady I purchased them from has a call duck farm and she has a whole bunch of colors and there are also 2 crested grey snowe eggs in the mix. It's kind of a surprise seeing as she got them from soany different calls. It will be exciting to see when they hatch.

    Hmmm, mind linking me to her site? Wobbles needs a buddy, I'd love a snowy call, and she's surely the only breeder left who still has laying hens!

    I got them off eBay. Her farm is called kooymans farm. If you type in call duck hatching eggs she will come right up. 12+ eggs for like $20 plus shipping.

    Sarah, did you candle these eggs yet? If so, does it look like they all are, or at least were, fertile? Like the others, I'm very surprised, and I have to say slightly suspicious, of a farm on the US east coast having this many hatching eggs this time of year. Hope it works out great for you!!!
