    Today i purchased 2 dozen fertile chic eggs at the auction by mistake. I saw brown chicken eggs they were for sale i baught... a man next to me asks me how i hatch.. I said i dont i just eat eggs.. he begged me not to eat them. He offered to buy them from me.I had also baught fertile duck eggs. I was so intrigued by the hatching of them (so was my 11 yr old daughter) so as you can imagine we have these pretty eggs and will be buying an incubator. Can you recomend a good brand? Will my duck(HEN) set on the eggs i baught today? or will i need to incubate them as well. Thank you all in advance for the help here.

    I believe that, like a chicken, unless your duck is broody, she won't set on the eggs. You'll have to incubate them too.
