In the Brooder
- Apr 12, 2012
I have two Pekin who have decided that December is a good time to start sitting on their eggs.
Depending on what part of the country your in it may not be such a good idea. Keeping ducklings alive can present a problem if mama isn't attentive and you just never know with ducks. So if you decide to let them sit please have a brooder set up and ready when hatching gets started because there is always a chance you may have to bring those ducklings inside if they are to survive.I have two Pekin who have decided that December is a good time to start sitting on their eggs.
I think very carefully you should do some candling eggs turning can mean dead or rotten. I say very carefully because if rotten the can explode if your not gentle.and another way to checkDuck has been sitting since Early December so we should be getting close to hatching. I noticed today that the eggs are turning a dark blue color. Is this OK or as I think that are dead and just starting to spoil.
