My Pekin female has been sitting on a nest of about 20 - 24 eggs for close to a month. She was bred by my male muscovy, which will make the ducklings Mullards ( mule ducks). Does anyone know if I can take the eggs and put them in an incubator since she has sat on them for so long. We were thinking of collecting the eggs and putting them in the incubator but I want to make sure that it is safe to do so. My pond is not large enough to accomodate that many ducks and I know that once she hatches them, it is going to be really hard to catch all of them to sell..Thanks in advance for any feedback you may have!
