    Roeuns and mallards lay a blue/green egg. I believe most call ducks do as well. How big are the eggs?

    Biker girl- Sorry I don't know the answer to your question, but I have read several posts on here that say that hatching duck eggs is a little different from hatching chicken eggs. Humidity etc- YOu may have done duck eggs before , but was gonna tell you that if you haven't- maybe it would be a good idea to do a search on incubating duck eggs- sorry for typos or run sentences - My night meds are starting to kick in.

    Quote:?? Purchased from a market? I don't know for certain, but I think most eggs like that are incubated for a period of time then stopped so... they may not be viable.
