Yesterday evening at about 8:PM I went to turn my ANCONA duck eggs in incubator and because they seem little too hot, i figured I let them cool off a bit, by leaving the cover open. I was thinking to come back and close the cover in a bout 1-2 minutes.
Then daughter came to visit with grand kids and all the commotion shuttered my memory!
This morning I went to turn my eggs over and I see the cover open and eggs soooo cold!
I covered them and hope for the best, but that would take literal miracle for them to hatch.
I'm devastated and so angry at my self.
I was turning them for so many days - Start day was March 21 and they were to be due at April 17.
Only 8 days to go!
They were developing so nicely!
Does any of you experienced such disaster and what was the outcome?
Today is day 28-th
They are hatching!
Two already drinking water and the rest is having holes in eggs :)
What a tough ducklings!
