    I had duck eggs due this week, well they started hatching, I had six out and dried off. Cut to 3 am this morning, power outage.
    I checked the incubator, a little duck was trying to hatch and by this time the incubator was getting cold.
    Sigh....I peeled some of the shell away and let him hatch the rest of the way in my bra.
    I didnt know what else to do!! [​IMG]
    So, until 1 pm this afternoon, when the power came back on, he was warm.
    I guess insanity doesnt have its limits.....[​IMG]
    I told my mom and she said she wasnt surprised, that it was on par with something I would do.

    They don't make cups big enough for me to be able to fit eggs in there. I'd be able to fit one egg inbetweenn...

    Kudos on the mom instinct!!
