    I just wasn't sure if i should leave them for a day to see if someone will set on them or just pull them

    Baking is where duck eggs show their superiority.

    Then again, if you want more ducks, you might have to wait until they have a dozen or so and see if they set. What kind of ducks are they?

    I don't think you'd make much money on selling them. I personally wouldn't pay much if any more than shipping for mutt eggs. But they are great in baking. I would say eat them. You can always let them set later!

    Quote:What is different about duck eggs that make them better for baking? I have read this several times before and always wondered about it.
