Two things: Winter hatching and what to do with a dead duck found today. We have two hens and a drake who have helped provide us with over 30 ducks since May 2014. We thought they were done until the spring, but one of the hens started laying again two weeks ago. We are in north Texas near Dallas, so the weather has its ups and downs. There are 15 eggs that she has been sitting on for the last couple of days. Will these hatch in the winter? We were talking about just eating the eggs or trying to incubate them. Please help. We still have several ducks that are over 14 weeks old and in the processing queue. One of them was found dead today in the pen. The kids said it looked funny prior to that and was not moving normally. We were going to process it, but were not sure if it is safe to eat. Please advise on this. Thank you.
