    I candled my 4 Swedish duck eggs last night and they all are alive and well but one has two embryos! I've seen twin baby chickens hatch, but never ducks, is it possible for them to hatch? Or will they just die? Thanks :)

    Sadly those eggs usually end I one or both dieing.

    How many days until hatch? Because that will be your definitive answer [​IMG]

    I'm late in updating also :p...All 4 eggs hatched, and sadly one of the twins died on around day 20 so the other duckling hatched and there was a half formed baby duck embryo just floating in some goop. The other 4 all lived happily and I still have one of them.
