    Are you completely certain of the incubation period? Could the eggs have been slipped in later by another hen?

    Or perhaps your coop is in a crop circle? [​IMG]

    well, i put the duck eggs under her myself at the start of august when they started laying so I know for sure it is at least 40 days, unless the frost slowed them down, it looks like only 3 out of the 6 were fertilised

    I can't see your picture -- but was it a Muscovy? They have a 35 day incubation period, and so it might be understandable.
