    I got 36 Khaki Campbell duck eggs @ an auction.. Have a broody hen, so I gave her 6 to set on. other 30 I put in bator.. Well I candled them a little while ago and 28 of them have a baby in them.. I haven't candled the ones under hen yet, almost scared to now... lol I bought that many, knowing some prob wasn't fertile and some won't make it al lthe way to hatch and I got them for $12.00... OMG, now I'm scared to how many will make it and hubby will kill me, because I also bought 6 pekin ducklings ..

    You should know better..LOL When you do something like that you should always tell the eggs that you need all of them to grow and hatch.. This way only a few will.. That is always the way it happens for me, the ones that I want to be strong and all grow only a few do and the ones that I dont care about will hatch like crazy. Good luck. Jenn
