    I am desperately waiting for my pekin/mallard mix duckling to hatch! It will hopefully hatch on the 25th which seems MUCH to long away [​IMG]. This is day 8 in incubation, and it looks good. I think that if it's a boy, I'm going to name him Buck, and if it's a girl, I might name her Fanya.

    Anyone else?

    This is how my Khaki Campbell are hatching:
    Incubate 7 eggs 1-31-15, 1 hatched 2-24, 1 hatched 2-25 and 1 hatched 2-26. Two were infertile and two didn't hatched.
    Incubate 7 eggs 2-01-15, 2 hatched 3-5, the others are piping.
    Incubate 14 eggs 2-8-15, not any show sign of hatching.
    Incubate 9 eggs 2-22-15.

    Hope this helps, have a good evening.

    Sad news, my little embryo died last night. :( I candled it, and it was dead. I'm going to do an eggtopsy and try to figure out why it died. :( It's a sad day in Duckville.

    I'm so sorry, Mer... :/ You only had the one egg? Can you tell me what the temp/humidity was?
