So we have a pair of ducks male and female about 6 months old. They have been mating, we discovered today that she has a nest full of eggs about 5 and was sitting on them. My question is can u get baby ducks now? Someone told me they wont hatch until spring & I read on google it only takes about a month. Do you think these eggs could hatch? And if so about when? She wasnt sitting on them this evening when I got home. We are considering an incubator....but we are just all together clueless on these things but we really want some baby ducks. can you guys help me out...i need a ducks for dummies book.
