    Here is a video of day 24 (last night), when I checked I was super surprised by the egg sac enlargment, chirping, and internal pipping as well as cracks in egg shell! We went into immediate lockdown after I filmed. I had 24 out of 30 with movement 2 nights ago. Tonight, I may have lost 6 out of those, as all the rest have larger air sacs & significant pipping. Fingers crossed I've locked down in time! This is my 1st try at incubating. Someone abandoned the ducks at my farm, & I left the eggs in nest (2 hens laying in 1 nest), up to a count of 30, to see if they would sit...but they had no interest in it.

  2. Oh good luck!!! I can't wait to try my hand at incubating duck eggs.
