    I put mine (duck) in lockdown this morning. Hatch date is Monday. Would love to hear from others hatching this weekend and see pics of other hatch. [​IMG] This is exciting!

    I have 16 in lockdown right now. I have 2 pips and 1 is pipped and starting to zip! They are "due" sunday so they are a little early. Can't wait to see what I get!

    I just checked mine this morning and was sure it would have pipped. But then I notice about a half dollar size brownish, almost looked like a bruise on the outside of the small part or egg. I candled it and sure enough no movement. SO close to hatch day too. The head was way down by the little end of the egg. Has this happened to anyone else? A duck be upside down? [​IMG] I'm heartbroken I only put this one egg in my incubator. It was going to be my little baby duck.
