    So we have two female and one male Welshy. We raised them from ducklings back in June. Thinking we would not start getting eggs until spring or summer. Well last night I went to put them to bed and noticed two of them. They both were frozen and cracked. Could the shells just not be that strong yet since it is the first lay? I have had frozen chicken eggs and never had them crack. [​IMG]

    Yep, they freeze and crack....I collect my Duck eggs early in the morning and I have to search for them because Ducks like to bury their eggs under the bedding.....


    Cheers!
