    I'm putting a few Anacona Duck eggs in the bator this morning. I have never incubated Duck eggs before, lots of chicken eggs but no ducks. I am told they take about 28 days which is awesome as I just realized that brings to me right about Easter!! What could be a better time to hatch. I would love some hatch buddies... chickens, ducks, whatever you have. Wish me luck!

    Good luck. I have seen these ducks eggs on ebay listed as endangered. Whats up with that or is it a sales pitch.

    They are hard to find, only about 300 flocks in the United States.
