We have semi wild mallard ducks on our ponds. They are not tame to your hand, they just grace our ponds with their presence. Anyway my brother in laws aggravating dog found a nest and has been snacking on eggs we discovered when he ran thru the yard with an egg in his mouth yesterday. So I promptly removed the last 6 eggs and put them in my incubator. I got the bright idea to look in the egg he cracked yesterday and the poor little duck was already formed and feathered! Any idea how far along in development that may be so I can anticipate when they might hatch? Right now I have 26 chicken eggs in the same bator that I just set on Tuesday. I do have a LG still air to use as a hatcher and I can move them to it late Friday, early Saturday if needed. ETA: we bought these ducks, they are not true wild mallards. They are not hand tame, however, they live their lives on 7 acres of ponds and the surrounding land. They are not penned, pinioned etc.
