    So i live in Upstate NY and today my 2 female pekin ducks laid 2 eggs, there are 2 males in with them. What should I do with the eggs? I took them out because i know the moms are bad mothers and they were starting to peck at them. This is the first time they have laid eggs! I am excited :)

    Well... you can eat them!! Duck eggs are great for baking, and are also good for people that are allergic to chicken eggs. Or if you want more ducks, and you think they are fertile (they should be with 2 drakes) you could collect them for hatching. Of course you will need an incubator, since your hens aren't broody. Congratulations on your eggs!!! It is so exciting when they first start laying! [​IMG]
