    Your ducks are cute.
    I'd be leary of that egg.
    Definitely wouldn't sell it to someone to eat.

    Thank You! i thought only 2 days might be ok, but i wanted to make sure. it was cool water, i dont know if water can damage the egg.

    Boil or scramble it up and feed it to the chickens [​IMG]

    I would not eat it - due to sitting in the wet - would not even try to hatch it.
