    I have a gal on eggs due Saturday and they pipped yesterday, but still no ducklings! Membranes look good and moist, so I think they're just taking their time. Im gonna go crazy.

    Ive got 6 call ducks in the incubator... should be hatching early next week.. So far they all look good.. Im crossing my fingers since Ive heard that calls are hard to incubate and hatch...
    This is my first time, so wish me luck.. I also have 9 more in another incubator..

    I wish I had a broody hen that would take care of them since the parents dont want to set....

    I'll join you...I have Khaki Campbells, a couple of Pekins and some Saxony ducklings due on Friday/Saturday. [​IMG]
    There is also a guinea fowl egg in there with them!
    I had a power outage a few weeks ago which may or may not delay them a day or so.

    I have 4 pips right now. One of them is really noisy!
    And the guinea fowl has pipped.
    Hmm. Maybe he's the noisy one. I've heard they have attitude. [​IMG]
