    USPS tracking says that today is the expected delivery date. They're not here yet, but in my experience this is usually pretty accurate for USPS. So today is probably going to be a big day!

    I've had my DIY incubator up and running for over a week now. Nice and steady temps in there with perfect humidity, and we've even learned how to change it to adjust it if we need to over this time. Feeling pretty confident!

    My ducks have started laying eggs themselves too, so in there is already on day 2 a duck egg from my own flock.

    I am so extremely excited...

    Good luck with your hatch! Hope USPS was kind to the eggs and you get lots of ducklings. Exciting that it is a new diy incubator, they are always a fun challenge to work with.

    Just got them in the mail! Beautiful, perfectly packed. Everything looks good despite USPS taking longer than expected.

    They've all been put into the incubator over the weekend. I'll candle them at the end of the week.
