:weee

 

My first time hatching anything other than my Son :lau ...  we moved into the Country and have 3 large ponds that are duckless ... The Farmers next door gave us the incubator and 16 eggs ... today they are breaking through .. I hope I know what I am doing ..

My dog seems to know what is going on and I have had to move her bed in the duck room so she can watch over them  ...

Thank you Mike !!   one has hatched :)   and has dryed off, drank some water and already eaten some nibbles and had a poo ;)  and has an attitude LOL ...!!!!!  I am beyond excited ...

the other seems to be just stuck :( ...  it cracked the shell about the same time as the newbie - but still no progress,  it has been moving under the membrane for hours now , but I know to be patient, i have raised the humidity and sprayed a tiny bit of warm water on the membrane

( hope that's ok ?? ) I am so new at this .....

 

 

  .... the other eggs ... still nothing yet ......

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
