    I have a question for anyone who might know the answer, I have 3 hen mallards with drakes mixed in with them, it is now on average about 30 degrees outside and I have one hen that lays everyday even if there is snow on the ground, I'm wondering why I incubated 10 of the eggs and they are not fertile does anyone know y this happens, any info would be wonderful

    the eggs might have frozen before you got to them
