    Today I got some call duck eggs on the mail and they are very small compared to a runner duck egg they are even smaller than the AA Large chicken eggs I buy at the store

    Are they really this small? [​IMG]

    How the babys look like when they hatched? [​IMG]

    Im kind of amazed. [​IMG]

    of course, they are only a pound and a half duck, smaller duck, smaller egg
    Usually about 2 inch long is a decent size for them.
    Look just like any other duck when hatched, just smaller again.

    congrats on getting them. They are much tuffer to hatch to than normal ducks, so be diligent on your incubation practices
