    Today when the mother duck was in the break, i saw her Drinking Water and going back to her nest ,when he was at the nest he spitted all the water that he drinked on the eggs. They stayed about 4-5 minutes with the water on them, i comed, i dried them and put some New Straws over the wet straws, the eggs were hot as normal. They are all Muscovy Duck Eggs and they are at day 21, the duck is for the first time mom and was raised at Incubator.
    Will the eggs be ok or should i get them off and remove the wet straws?

    They will be fine. Don't worry. My Hens all swim during their breaks and go back to the nests wet.
