    Any news yet? Ducks do take forever. Mine hatched the 29th night. Pip to zip took over 24 hours as well.

    Congrats to everyone on the new hatches! I've been up to my eyeballs in duckling poo, so haven't been online much. OMG, 15 of them in a bathtub is just not good. So with heavy heart, they moved out to the pole building. They are happy and having a blast, so the only sad one is me. DH...

    ssshhhh, no saying that S word! I'm not ready for winter at all. And now that we'll have to add on to the duck run, I'm less ready than I was yesterday. It's all good, the more the merrier around here.

    Good thinking. I think I have some camo fabric in the stash. Probably some with skulls as well. I'll have to go look. He grumbled his way out to the garage and closed the door. That's my cue to do what I want while he's not looking.

    I think I probably need some. And I'm already on DH's list. I showed him the cute duck in a diaper and he said he hates you all.

    Oh no! The lady that wanted half my duck hatch didn't show up, again. So I now am keeping all 15. And after seeing that I could diaper one and keep it in the house, I'm thinking about it. My DH will be less than impressed.

    Thank you! I thought DH was silly when he was whispering to our eggs. You win!

    Checking in to see how everyone else is doing in here. I'm busy playing maid to some seriously messy ducklings. It's been getting cold outside and in the coop, so I had the not so bright idea to put them in the bathtub on the main floor. On puppy piddle pads of course. How the heck they...

    Yes, this. We had a fund raiser to attend, I forced myself to go be social. And got back to two tired, wet ducklings. Woo Hoo!!!!!

    We had tickets for the hospital fund raiser, so I forced myself to go. Had a great time and came home to 2 ducklings! I'll take pictures once they are in the brooder, they are still wet and quite tired.

    Most are pipped today, one is working his/her way out. I didn't realize that ducks take so long to zip. This is exhausting!

    I'm still waiting. Up and down all night, getting nothing done today.... Today is hatch day, but almost all had pipped by midnight. I have one trying to work it's way out, and I'm getting really worried. How long can they remain in there once they pip? More gray hair is coming in as I type!

    These duckie eggs are going to be the death of me. We rushed home this afternoon to just a few more pips. We went out to dinner to kill time, came home to more pips. I know I won't sleep a wink tonight, I'll be sitting here with my flashlight so I don't keep DH up all night.

    Rushed home to no ducklings. More pips, but that's it. We went out for dinner so I would stop staring. Rushed home, more pips but no ducklings. I think I'm getting more gray hair today.

    Mine aren't due until tomorrow, but I had 2 pips before I left for work. I'm bailing out early.

    That works. I'm finishing up as fast as I can, then bailing out. Some days it's good to be the boss.
