    Hey guys! I am wanting to do a science fair project something like making an incubator and buying a premade incubator and maybe, like, six eggs and hatching them and seeing which one has a better outcome. But I'm trying to find something better than just that. If you have any suggestions, I will appreciate! Thank you!

    Ooh... I like that last one... Hmm... I'm not sure yet, though... Keep coming with the ideas! Also, where is the best place to buy them, and what type should I get? No mallards, though. I live in Florida, so it's kinda against the law.[​IMG]

    Or maybe try hatching refirgerated eggs vs non-refrigerated eggs. People seem to be asking frequently if it will work or not. You could provide us with some scientific evidence.

    do you need eggs? I have 13 fresh runner duck eggs I will send for just the shipping cost. ($10 flat rate priority) I did my science fair on Beta fish, won 2nd place in the Bio division Nationals. [​IMG]

    What color runners do you have? I like those, and that's a really good price. How old are the eggs? I need that information first. Also I need an incubator, so if you have any good ideas of how to make one or find one for a good price, that is well appreciated! Thanks you guys! [​IMG]
