    At 6 weeks they completely feathered or very close to it. So if there was no feathers she would of had to been no older than about 2 weeks roughly.

    Depends on the duck. I'm thinking that because she is new to egg laying she won't hatch any just collect eggs

    Have faith my petunia didn't start laying until late at least a month late but now she lays a egg everyday for me and she lays green tinted eggs which are very unique and cool!

    But she is my most reliable layer, she out lays my 9 chickens and hasn't missed a day since she started laying[​IMG]

    Possible Rouens coming as I type this!!! My first ever duckling hatch out of my first ever ducks out of my first ever incubator I have made!!!!

    Sorry for the mess in there, chicks just hatched a few days ago in there.

    The blue arrow is pointing to an egg that I can actually see through the shell and see the duckling moving around in there just sitting there like it is.

    C'MON DUCKLINGS, GET OUT OF THERE....[​IMG].
