    Hi

    I am new to ducks and my 3 remaining eggs are at day 24 today so due to be 'locked down' tomorrow evening!
    Very exciting but nerve wracking!

    I live in the UK and am looking everywhere I can for some Ancona Duck hatching eggs. I have found none here at all the only ones I have seen are from the states and I dont think they can be exported here?
    Does anyone by any chance know if this is correct or by any chance where I could get some from?

    Thanks very much

    That's great, thank you, I'll do that!

    I got 6 mixed breed eggs from Magpie, Aylesbury, Rouen and Welsh Harlequin running together so could be very inetersting results!

    What do you have? [​IMG]

    Hatching eggs are such an exciting experience! I have hatched 2 eggs over the summer for the first time and it was very exciting watching the ducklings hatch! Sadly we started with 24 eggs but only two hatched because we had to move the incubator because of construction going on in my house and it was terrible timing. The eggs were in lock down during that time. I hope you have better luck than i did, the duckings hatching was an unforgettable experience! Good Luck:)

    Thank you!
    So sorry about your hatching, that must have been very upsetting but at least you had two healthy ones.
    I bet it was amazing to watch, I cant wait!
