Since August my Pekin duck Crumpet has been laying- and sitting- and breaking her eggs- and laying and sitting ...........- All the while I have also been incubating some of her eggs as well. Last time she started sitting I didnt record the date- and when she got down to her last two eggs in the nest- I took them and covered her nest as we also had a forecast for extremely hot weather, an her nest was in a particularly bad area on hot days. I had just gone to bed- it is 1am here- and then I remembered I hadnt checked the eggs tonight. Well I am certainly glad that I did as I found one of the two eggs has a little beak in the airsac. My best calculations said that they werent due until next Wednesday.. I must have been wrong. Hope I see two pip holes in the eggs by morning.
