    8 call Duck eggs, and an incubator that only holds 7!!

    So I purchased on eBay 8 call duck hatching eggs, and my boyfriend says he can't wait to smash them. I believe it is due to their loud mouth duck-ness, their heavy work load, and the increased electric usage from keeping the incubator room above 70° all day while we are not home. .....I...

    My eggs are late

    I know that with incubation, eggs hatch on their own time. Mine are 24 hrs over due, that's not what worries me.The problem I'm having is that none of them are even wiggling, except for one. It has a small peep and wiggles very rarely. With this batch, I have a few eggs that have droplets of...

    Lessons learned! Brinsea Mini Advance 2

    So I got an incubator for Christmas. At first I never really wanted one, and decided to let mother nature do her own thing at her own pace. I've always let broody hens sit the eggs and do the work for me - I've always just personally felt it's better for the chicks to get that chicken knowledge...

Is it ok to take them out really quickly and gently to remove second tray and put them on first one? This will be day 21 for 2 and 20 for 3 more in...

    I had 3 hatch Sunday and since this was a staggered hatch I "thought" I had a few days for the remaining 4 eggs. Anyway after I successfully moved the 3 newbie chicks to ther small brooder with the 4 born on the 27th, I went back to move the eggs into a better area in the incubator and try and...

    Will these eggs hatch?

    My dog killed two of my most favorite and best laying ducks but luckily I had some of their eggs. But I got their eggs right before I went out of town for ten days. During that time the people that were house sitting put the eggs in the fridge. Is it possible that the eggs could still hatch?

    Blood in incubator

    I had a chick hatch last night with a bloody bottom. I'm guessing it hatched too early. It passed away in incubator a few hours later before drying off. There was blood all over the incubator. I quickly tried to open to remove chick and wipe some blood. Looks like some has dripped into the...
