It could be as early as the second day's egg after mating them.

Fertility extends to 8 to 10 days after a drake is removed from a duck.

With my mussies i usually wait a week and then i know i have fertile eggs- they will lay more than they can sit on so you can aford to eat/throw away a few - just to be sure what they do have is fertile.

Regards

Honk
