I was surprised today when I went to get a gosling out of the incubator to see...a DUCK! At first I thought it was an Indian Runner (I had even put that in a incubating post!)though I had candled the last two eggs and they didnt appear viable anymore. I had thought my Crested Blue Swedish eggs were a bust as well...BUT as this one dried off and one more duckling hatched, they didnt look like any Runners I ever saw. Since it was the last egg in there when it hatched, I opened the incubator, and sure enough the writing on the shells was Blue Swedish. One is darker with right now yellow on his/her chest, extending down, the other one isnt dry yet but from what I can tell he/she is lighter with only a little bit of white on the chest.
My daughter says "they have funny shaped heads",lol.

Well, this is a first for me, I have never had them before. Its amazing how much nerve they have, not frightened of the bigger goslings as well and follow them around.
