    Thanks..I did my first batch of ducks last month and only four was fertile out of 12..well one of those had quit early on to..I got these from a breeder who was very picky about the eggs and wrote dates on the eggs and what breed they were so I think this one will be better, I hope..

    Fingers crossed! Are you going to candle them around the 10-day mark to check fertility and viability? Keep us posted.
