    I took the teal eggs and wrapped them in toilet paper (unused of course!LOL) then placed the wrapped egg in an Easter egg so they can not move, then i taped the egg shut. I then placed a good amount of shavings in the bottom of the box, a layer of bubble wrap, a layer of shavings with the eggs separated by more shavings, bubble wrap again and then more shavings to top it off.

    Remember, this is purely an experiment!! Good luck and let me know how things go!!............Jason

    [​IMG] I got the eggs!!! [​IMG]
    One of them appears to have a disrupted airsac... it rolls all over if you gently turn the egg. I put a "?" on it, and we'll see how it does. All the others seem to be ok. They are such small unassuming little eggs. [​IMG] They feel neat, too... kind of waxy. Different from my big ducks. Well, they're going to go to their rightful place under a broody silkie butt.

    How many days til hatch on this breed?
