    Hi we are about to lock our eggs down in incubator, we made it to day 22 so tomorrow is lock down day. Has anyone successfully hatched twin ducks on this site?? I know this is not a common thing to happen so looking for suggestions to help it be successful. I do only have one other egg in there, debating moving each to its own hatcher. Here is our twin duck egg at day 22 of incubation. We set it in at 11pm on 4/25 so hope I'm doing the lock down day correct if I lock it down at 11 pm 5/18... here's the link if you want to take a peak, just click on the link

    So far, I have found this video from a BYC chicken hatcher, hatching twin chicks. Closest I could get at this point.

    @ Amiga.. that was the only thing I found also. Thx, I was hoping with people more into homesteading/farming and more advanced technology with incubators more people who have had them since that story. Those two ducklings in that story was absolutely adorable right!!?

    We got a little bit of wiggle this evening not much, but the egg moved. Hoping all is good because that's all we seen so far. Hard to hear peeping with 12 baby chickens all around 8 weeks! I certainly am not going to sleep much. Should there be more movement saw a little wiggle around 5 p.m.?
