Best Answer

Duck eggs that have baby ducks inside can only last around 60 hours in the cold without being incubated. If they have no baby inside they can last a long time. Up to a few weeks. But if the egg is left to long then it will go rotten. Check first to see if the egg is fertile, if so transfer to an incubator or under a broody hen. Go to for more accurate answers.
