I have been setting eggs from my favorite duck.  I have set perhaps 30 in various small batches over several weeks with various fathers, but my boys simply aren't fertile at this time of year (I don't use extra light).  Finally I have ONE fertile egg.

I don't need to enter the contest... I might have won if the contest was for the lowest hatch rate!!!

It looks ok in the picture. Keep an eye on it though.

The heartbeat appears late on day 3 or day 4 (for ducks) and disappears about a day or two later as the embryo fills out and moves away from the eggshell.  I even have a very healthy adult duck that never had a heartbeat as a baby; the embryo must have been turned in a way that hid the hearbeat.  You need to look at the veins to know if the baby is OK.  In this case the veins look good, so the baby should be fine.  

 

I have successfully hatched babies with various odd spots inside their eggs, including strange spots right on top of a vein.  As long as the veins keep growing and look healthy, the baby is most likely just fine.

We have all been there!

 

When they look like that, they almost always hatch! It is a good indication that your incubator is working very nicely.

Looky what we got today, and it's still snowing!

 

Started out windy, then real windy, then all of a sudden hard hard wind!  Looked out to see what the chickens were doing.  They just laid down..then, the ice came..they didn't know what to do.  My husband and I put on our jackets and went out to shoo them into the run.  They scooted right under the coop pretty quick.  It snowed all day, and now it looks like we are in for it off and on through the night, and tomorrow.   We need it..not complaining too much.  Didn't go anywhere today.  Heard sirens going up the canyon. Always scary.  We live off the old canyon road from Highway 6.   Google Highway 6 in Utah as one of the worst accident areas in the state.   :( 

 

 


 I love our apple tree in the front..in the winter and the spring.  :)
