Hello everyone! New to this forum! I have 1 Drake Mallard and 3 Hen Mallards. Eggs are coming left and right now and I am alittle overwhelmed!! 2 ducklings have hatched and a new batch has started with another Hen! Just coming here to share my experiences and gain advice from others!

If you pick up the eggs DAILY and refrigerate - they will not develop into chicks. You can use duck eggs for cooking, eating, giving to neighbors, your dogs(?) etc. Most people on this site complain that their birds arent' laying but, you seem to have hit the jackpot.

LOL...thanks! Not really complaining....but not sure what to do at this point. It's all a learning process for us. If my 3rd Hen starts laying as well, I don't know what we will do. We thought they only laid eggs though July. We won't eat the eggs but heard they are great for cooking.
