I was wondering if anybody else has noticed this. I have incubated and hatched maybe 20 Muscovy ducklings this year. ALL of the eggs then resulting ducklings that have come from my hens are doing wonderfully, very large and healthy. The ducklings from the eggs I bought(they were not shipped, I picked them up). Haven't done as well. Some died after internally pipping. Some hatch seem, okay and then die with in the next week or so. I have lost 5 hatched seemingly okay ducklings this year all from eggs I bought. I have lost 0 from my own hens. (all eggs were hatched in the same incubator at the same time, same conditions) This seems like too big of a trend to be just by chance, so my question is, does care of the adult make that much difference in the health of the young ducklings?
