    that it explodes?
    day temps around 15 degrees (celsius) mum apparantly been sitting for 2 weeks.....

    bought a new runner duck, she had a nest of eggs come with her...had apparantly been with a male yet the male got killed last week so the people wanted rid of the female.

    i thought id put the eggs in my bator to finish the hatch.......been home 4 hours and already 4 have exploded, drenching my incubator in that lovely smell....i guess i'll chuck the other 10 eggs...they're covered...tried candling but they all look the same, dark with air cell but no movement can be seen?

    just wondering why they all exploding if she'd only been sitting for 2 weeks...surely eggs cant go so bad so quick? i actually paid that little bit extra at the thought of having some ducklings running round soon..stupid me i suppose.....
