What's up with her comb? The dark marks near the back? Rough boys?

No, not boys... the Marans are so nosey, they stick their heads in or through anything... always scrape their combs up pulling them back through the fence...

Great pics! And I love that people can see the comparison between the air cell of "local" vs shipped eggs. I so wish I could candle with you in person and see those little feet swimming!
Awe beautiful!
So sorry no one was around. Please update. I hope that chick is out! hugs.gif
That's adorable! Great hatch, so far! thumbsup.gif
Yes! Lol!
Good job!! I've sold all of the pullets I wanted to get rid of and I'm stuck with extra boys (couldn't even give them away). I was seriously thinking today that processing would be an excellent answer but mine are silkies and I just don't think I could eat that dark meat! Kinda wish at times like these that I had picked a different breed! Anyway, I'm happy for you! Sounds perfect!

No, I sure don't, but I'm betting at least one or two regulars on here probably own one & could get you a picture; probably WV or Walnut

You mean like an old cheese crock? I have a little one, I think.

Glazed inside & out?  The ones I've seen are heavy, tan on the bottom, dark brown on top. I don't know what "stoneware" is, like Walnut referred to yesterday, but these crocks may fall into that category.

YEP! I thought I'd seen them with hinged lids; perhaps not. For fermentation, wouldn't Saran Wrap work?

When we moved the new duckling from the bator to the brooder I noticed its belly was a bit big. And a few pieces of shell stuck to I guess the belly button. Does this look ok? Do I need to do anything?

Little one did drink some water.

Thanks everyone for the advice and well wishes. We just got back home and the little thing is still in there. It's moving but still not chirping in any way. There is a constant clicking sound like it is tapping the shell but I can see the beak so it isn't, unless it's doing it with its feet. It's been pipped for somewhere between 50-60 hours right now and all the other chicks have been fluffed out for 1-2 days. Everyone else is hatched.
So I chipped away the area around the air cell and moistened the membrane to look at the veins and this is what I saw:

Those veins aren't ready, are they? I'm so confused on what to do. I've read all I can read very thoroughly, but am still unsure. I don't want to hurt it. Membrane seems white and pliable. It's on a wet towel in the bator.

Thanks again to the helpers. Let me know if you need a better shot. I thought it was clearer than that.
