    The two on the sides are normal duck eggs. The hen was going crazy the night before we got it!!! No wonder...

    For the duck's sake, I hope this is a one time freak egg!

    Me too. I was worried I would lose a duck after I got it. The dogs were going crazy, the rooster started to crow at 3 in the morning and the ducks were quacking. We can only figure it was this egg and the roos and dogs wee reacting to the ducks noise...

    I can not wating to hatch it.

    Ive tried a couple times to incubate double yolkers. problem is sometimes one yolk is fertile and the other isnt and the growing duckling gets crushed against the shell wall because the other yolk doesnt give it enough room.
