I heard from here that thunder is supposed to kill eggs. How truthful is that? I had 12 duck eggs in my bator, 8 were good. Well about 2.5-3 weeks ago, we had a thunder storm. They're all dead. I thought they were doing good at the last candle but I wasn't seeing duck, I was seeing rot. I just put 16 eggs in the bator yesterday. I have 9 under my hen that are 6 days old. I'm listening to the thunder as I type. What ate the odds the eggs are OK? Who here believes the thunder rule, and who doesn't? Do you have any hatches/dead eggs to prove it?
