I have 4 pekins and have been really wanting to hatch some eggs from them. 2 are alittle over a year old ducks and the other two are 1 duck 1 drake and are aprox. 20 wks/5 months old. They all hang out together and have a very large deep pond to play in. I have not seen any mating going on but have seen the girls flatten out in the water and my neighbor told me she saw them on top each other. One duck (I'm guessing an older one) started laying 2 weeks ago and I put her first 8 eggs in the incubator. So far I candled them and they are all still just a yolk, so I assume infertile? It's been 6 days so should I toss them? I know the first few eggs might not be fertile but when will they start being fertile? Is my drake just to young still? I have been collecting and egg a day and saving them to put in the incubator as a batch when I get enough. Should I just not bother and eat them? I was hoping for an Easter hatch but I guess that's not going to happen now .
