    Wanted to add a few ducks to my flock so took 10 duck eggs and put them in my incubator. Wanted about 4-5 more ducks. Well 9 hatched! A few more then I wanted.

    Super cute! Awesome job on 9/10! I remember the first time I hatched duck eggs I got a 100% hatch :D
    funny how people say chickens are easier, i've tried chicken eggs I can never get them to hatch.
    always 1 or 2 every hatch. that's why I stick with my ducks! :)

    Last year I did Guinea eggs and had 22 of 29 hatch. Gave 15 away and kept 7. Will be looking for people in Western Pa to take a few Pekin ducks.
