I noticed a Call duck was sitting on more eggs than she could fit under her so I had my daughter pull the eggs to candle them. It turns out my Easter Eggers have been laying in the duck nest box so that explains the lack of chicken eggs I had been expecting from them after we moved them in with the Call ducks. I had thought they stopped laying due to stress, just when I was ready to start hatching. The Easter Egger eggs went into the incubator so now the Call hen can cover her eggs again (plus a few from another Call hen my daughter slipped under her). We are going to have daily hatches now and we won't have due dates for them so we have to candle frequently to check development.
I am not sure how I am going to keep up with babies since my surgery was postponed but my daughter is taking the lead this year so that is good for her now that she is nearly sixteen. I hope I taught her well.
