I have hatched and cared for beautiful ducklings (88% hatch rate first time). However, I am getting more into Call Ducks and have ordered some Eggs.

Do any of you have specific advice for Call Duck Eggs?

I am open and learning every single day.

Depending on how close to exhibition quality they are bred, they may need assistance when hatching. I only have experience with Calls, but I believe most ducks are 28 days in the incubator? (Correct me if I'm wrong guys! ) Calls are 26. Though obviously they can take longer.

Understood. I believe these are pet quality - I didn't want to shoulder the burden of Show Quality having no Call Duck experience. I have yet to see how many eggs are fertilized (embryo only present on days 3-5 for me) but they are all getting great attention!
