Could someone please give me some info on what to do with duck eggs? I found our first 2 today. We've got a Rouen hen, and a Pekin drake. So I don't know if they are fertilized or not. I don't really want MORE ducks, but I do value life, so I don't want to destroy it if it's fertile. I don't really want to eat duck eggs either, but I heard they are good to bake with. If I don't see anything fertilized by candling them, can you still use them to cook with? How long can they be at room temp? (like chicken eggs??) How am I going to know if they are safe to eat----saying that they aren't fertilized and I'm brave enough to try?? I'd appreciate any info! Also, does this explain why our drake is so dog gone nasty aggressive?? He'll literally come charging from way across the yard to nip you. If this has happened to any of you, has it gotten better??
