    Well we have our first pip from our Call duck eggs in the hatcher. One egg is the one with twins in it. Both have made it until now and when I candled this morning to check on them, both little beaks were in the air chambers, breathing away.

    It was the egg with the twins in it that's pipped first and hopefully in a few hours I'll have them out of their shell healthy and happy. <fingers crossed>

    I'll try to get pictures along the way. I may have to help them and hubby isn't great with a camera, but we'll see.

    Thats awesome!! be warned though, you might have to help twins hatch. You must have a good incubator that you can hatch out call eggs, even ones with twins.
