    Is it one of your eggs or did you find it from a wild duck?

    Found at duck pond by my house. Saw kids throwing the other eggs so I am trying to save this one.

    Ok,
    I'm not sure if you need a licence to take the eggs,
    Because I'm in Ireland and we have different rules.
    There is no way to check if it's fertile by candling it.
    The only way to find out If it's fertile is to,
    Crack it open and look for the 'bullseye' or,
    Put it in the incubator for a few days to see if anything starts forming,
    But as I say check with your local authorities to see if you can actually take a wild duck egg.

    Did you throw something back at those rotten kids? How awful. I would have had some choice words for them. What punks. [​IMG]

    If it is fertile you have to get a few more ducks or give the duckling to a farm they get lonely by themselves.
