    Wow!! I can't believe how many hatched. I was expecting about 10, but 16 out of 18 is amazing! There is still one in the bator, not pipped but still alive. I doubt it will make it, but I don't have the heart to unplug the incubator.

    Very Cute! If they could just stay little, I'd be hatching more of them myself! Have fun feeding, cleaning up...they grow so fast!

    They are sooooo cute I can't wait for our's to hatch, mama duck is sitting on a nest full of eggs, she is kinda mean to yesterday I put some water close to her nest and she didn't like that at all she just kept pecking at my hand. so I was wondering how you can take bad eggs out of the nest when she won't let you near it?[​IMG]

    Quote:My female ducks will not sit on any eggs. I have left dozens in there, nothing. My 2 females lay in the same nest and when I go to collect the eggs, the male gives me a hard time. The females could care less. He runs into the house and literally pushes my arm away from the eggs and nips me too. I wait til he is in the pool with the ladies to snatch the eggs.

    Quote:Wait when she gets off the nest I reckon, when she goes for a drink and snack and bath - then sneak in and take the bad eggs out.
