..in regards to tossing a duck egg?? Today is day 6 of incubation and for the hell of it I candled. Nada. No veins, no small dark spots, just a very clear yolk that moves around quite easily. This comes to no real surprise, this would be the duck in questions first real clutch and from observation, her drake has a lot of room of improvement when it comes to doing the job right. The other day he innocently tried to mount her.. diagonally, and then in trying to do the deed ended up making his copulation to thin air.. twice. The weather in Eastern Oregon is less than satisfactory for baby making, we had a ton of snow. Now we have a ton of rain and wind, and at night we freeze some. So, it's been roughly a week with no notable gestation.. For the sake of avoiding any stink, and keeping room for the other eggs that should hatch, is now as good a time as ever to pitch them? In actuality, I have all spring to hatch more Saxony's.
