    Anyone have a good estimate on when a ducks eggs will be fertile after they start laying? Lets say if a duck lays its first egg yesterday (dec. 1) about how long would you wait to start collecting eggs for the the incubator?

    I always wait at least 2 weeks. The first few are rarely the best choices for hatching.
