    When you follow this thread on BYC: I accidentally bought Balut eggs: 2 live ducks! and go to the butchery and enquire about those free range duck eggs on the counter...

    Future Khaki Campbell duck owner here lol The butcher loved the idea of me trying to hatch them and refused to let me pay for the eggs :) Now, let's hope these guys play along and produce some duckies!

    Sweet. 6 out of 6 ain't bad! I absolutely LOVE to candle eggs and see the new life developing inside.
