I set 9 eggs from my own ducks this morning after I found my pekin drake was goneand I found the females nest. I had no clue she was even laying eggs until searching for him. I so want these eggs to hatch even just one to carry on my Lucky Duckies genes he was so sweet! So I am sad, excited, and very nervous due to my horrible hatching rates. The egg I cracked had a bulls eye so I think they are fertile, I just don't know how long they have been there.
