Can I incubate a duck egg i found in the shallow part of the pond or is it no good?
Why couldn't you? Isn't the shell suppose to be water proof? Look good for cracks in the egg. I'd do it unless someone has a legit reason why you shouldn't.
i dont see why not, give it a go and find out
Dave Holderread, in Storey's Guide to Raising Ducks, says he once incubated an entire nest full of submerged eggs--they had been submerged at least 12 hours, during a sudden deluge. He says all (or nearly all--I don't remember exactly) hatched and did great. I say, why not try?
ducks lay eggs in water!!!!!!!!!!! ive seen them mate in water but never in almost 2 years ever seen an egg in water!!!!!!!!!!!
Id go ahead. I mean Im sure its still good if it was sunk. If they float they are bad, yucky , and stinky eggs
guess that gives a new spin on water birth

If you think about it, them laying an egg in pool must be very comftable for them
