    I set 41 shipped eggs in the bator today. I'm so excited. I let them rest for 24 hrs first, small end down. They all arrived safe and sound yesterday afternoon. None were broken. I ordered Black Australorp, Welsummer, Lavender Orps, Ameraucanas, and Black/Lavender Ameraucanas.

    Great, we can count down together. Duck eggs incubate for 28 days, right? What kind are they?

    I get my eggs from ebay auctions. I've always done well with shipped eggs.
