I'm on lockdown right now with duck & Toulouse eggs. Already have 6 ducklings that hatched earlier today with one more pipped. Ducks are usually such slow hatchers, but these guys have been fast lol. Congrats on the first one out Aoxa
Oh gosh, a little of everything. They're from our flock of Indian Runners, Khaki Campbells, Jumbo Pekins, Pekins, & Runner x Pekins. They really have been super quick with this hatch - 5 more are out and one of the goose eggs is externally pipped. Good luck with y'all's hatches
Here are my first two that came out last night! Had two more out this AM, 3 more starting to zip, and 10 with pips I can see! Oh the first time is so exciting!
To the OP: Mine did a lot of chirping before pipping. Once they pipped, they all rested for at least 6 - 12 hours. Once they started zipping it took as little as 30 minutes for them to be free!
