Our Duck Hatching Eggs Guarantee

Duck hatching eggs for sale from our family of hatcheries are guaranteed to arrive unbroken. If you should notice that any of the eggs are cracked, contact us right away. We will be happy to replace any eggs that were broken in shipping.

In perfect hatching conditions, 85-90% of fertilized eggs will hatch. As you can imagine, shipping duck eggs in the mail does not satisfy that perfect-conditions criteria. Though we take great care in packing our hatching eggs, rough handling and temperature fluctuations can affect hatch rates. However, we optimistically estimate that you’ll experience the rate of your ducks hatching at just under that standard of 85-90%.

 

What Should I Know about the Incubation Process?

Once your fertile eggs have arrived, you will need to start the incubation process. Caring for your fertilized duck hatching eggs requires a delicate balance to nurture the developing embryos. Duck eggs, like chicken eggs, demand specific conditions to thrive. At Freedom Ranger Hatchery, our fertilized duck eggs for sale are ready to embark on a hatching journey of approximately 28 days.

Ensuring a consistent temperature between 99.3 and 99.6 degrees is paramount, as any fluctuations can impact the hatch rate significantly. You’ll need to use a reliable incubator to create this steady temperature range and provide the ideal environment for your ducklings’ growth.

Humidity levels also play a vital role in the incubation process of our duck hatching eggs for sale. Maintaining humidity between 45-55%, which can be increased to 65% during hatching, prevents the membrane inside the shell from drying out and ensures the healthy development of your ducklings.

You should also mist the eggs with warm water to draw out moisture, facilitating the growth of the air sac, and creating an optimal environment for your ducklings to flourish. By following these meticulous steps, you set the stage for a successful incubation process that leads to the joyful moment of watching your ducklings hatch.

 

When Should I Candle My Duckling Eggs?

A person shines a light through an egg to check on the embryo’s development.
After purchasing our duck hatching eggs for sale, you’ll need to candle the eggs. Candling your duckling eggs is a crucial step in the incubation process, allowing you to monitor the development of the embryos and ensure their well-being. We recommend candling your duck eggs on specific days: the day you put your duck eggs in the incubator, day 4, day 7, day 14, and day 21.

By shining a light through the eggshell, you can check for cracks, detect signs of embryo growth, and identify any potential issues, such as blood rings that indicate bacterial contamination. Utilizing tools like a mini flashlight and beeswax to seal minor cracks, you can safeguard the delicate life of each egg.

The process of candling not only provides valuable insights into the progress of your ducklings but also fosters a sense of connection with the life evolving within the eggs. By embracing this intimate practice, you become an active participant in the miracle of life, ensuring that each egg receives the care and attention it deserves.

Through regular candling sessions, you establish a routine that promotes healthy development. It also deepens your bond with the soon-to-be-hatched ducklings, setting the stage for a rewarding hatching experience. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to purchase your set of duck hatching eggs for sale.

 

How to Care for Your Ducklings Post-Hatch

After the exhilarating moment of witnessing your ducklings hatch, it’s essential to provide them with proper care to support their growth and well-being. You should let the ducklings rest and dry off in the incubator for up to 24 hours post-hatch. This period allows the ducklings to acclimate to their new environment and ensures that they are fully ready for the next phase of their journey. By maintaining a warm and welcoming space, you create a nurturing environment that fosters the natural instincts of the ducklings.

Once your ducklings are dry and active, it’s time to consider transitioning them to a brooder where they can continue to thrive under your care. It’s essential to monitor their behavior, ensure they have access to food and water, and provide a comfortable and safe space for them to explore.

By following these simple yet crucial steps, you lay the foundation for the healthy development of your ducklings and set them on the path to becoming vibrant and happy members of your flock. Remember, the care and attention you provide in these early stages will shape the future of your ducklings and strengthen the bond you share with them.
