    My duck had a nest of 9 eggs and they got wet in the rain. Will they still hatch or should I throw them away? They were not in a puddle of water, the rain just blew into their house.

    They will hatch just fine if they aren't cracked from absorbing water. I had some girls last year that either laid their eggs IN our creek or so close that the eggs rolled in...any eggs that weren't cracked went into the bator and most of them hatched.
