    This is the first time I have ever tried hatching duck eggs.

    I will put them in the bator tonight. I will be using the goose egg turner. Some of these are pretty big.

    April 17 is Day 1. May 14 is Day 28.

    Fingers crossed. [​IMG]

    I meant to ask - do you have a pic of some Appleyard Ducks? I don't think I have ever heard of them. [​IMG]
