    I have 8 Purebred Call duck eggs hatching. Today is day 26, they are just on time. THey are from a white hen and gray drake. So far 3 are out of the eggs, and 4 others have pips. Maybe I will get a 100% hatch on my call duck eggs.

    That would be great. They are very cute.

    They come in Gray, White, Snowy, Pastel and a couple other colors.
    Also magpie, which is black and white.

    I have a broody Gray Call hen sitting on eggs, I candled them last night, supposed to hatch today, and all 8 are dead, looks like they died a week ago. So, I am going to take these baby call ducks and give them to her to raise.

    So far 5 have hatched. 1 is silver and the other 4 are gray. I have 2 more ready to push out, and 1 more egg, that the duckling died after it pipped the air sac.

    7 out of 8 call duck eggs hatched. Isnt that great!

    Im going to be posting pics in a little while. [​IMG]

    What an excellent hatch!! I never have that good of a hatch rate on my calls....only about a 30% [​IMG] You must have done something right, that's for sure. Congratulations!!

    How precious! I can't wait for the ones we just got to start to lay. I'm so nervous about hatching them though as I've heard they are very hard to hatch!
