    Hi, i have a drake and two ducks i recently separated them from my chooks because i found out they won't breed with chickens around... but its been a month or two and they started nesting but i think they aren't fertile because i candled them and can't find any veins or blood vessels but they acted as though they nested and became protective, but after 3 weeks of constantly laying they've turned black also. I've never seen them mate and i feel as though they haven't but not sure what to do?
    cheers bree

    What kind of Ducks?...The eggs need to be incubated by the Hen in order to start developing...Meaning she will need to set them for at least a week till you will see any signs of veins or development..Not all Hens go Broody..It could be the time of year...Hormones go higher in spring and breeding season begins...
