    Quote:You're ducklings are due Sunday. Keep an eye on those air cells and make sure they are where they need to be!
    Good luck and hope you end up with many cute ducklings!
    We will definitely be needing to see pictures, of course. [​IMG]

    I have been checking them every other day so far so good. Air cells are solidly placed, movement in all eggs as of yesterday when I checked them. 12 white and 9 gray set. Can't wait for next week so the waiting will be over. Of course I will share pics too.

    Best of luck! I just hatched two black east indies ducklings a few days ago and they are doing great. May your call ducklings hatch and do well, too! [​IMG]

    Quote:I have a hatch due on Monday so we may be pacing together. [​IMG] I have several different colors(Snowy, Pencil, Black, White and Blue Fawn Pied) set.
    On day 24, check to make sure they are rockin' and rollin' in there and trying to break the air cell.
    Poor little tiny Calls are such LAZY hatchers that a lot of times, you have to assist them out of the shell-I know MANY people will tell you never to help, but I disagree 1000% when it comes to Call ducklings.

    I will be watching like a hawk this weekend for sure. Thanks for the tips. They ate in egg cartons right now, the pulp style cut way down to allow airflow. Can they hatch in them, or should I take them out?

    Quote:I would go ahead and take them out next time you turn. What is your humidity running right now?

    They were 40-50% I started raising it yesterday and bumped it to 65% bumping again today looking for 70-75% as my target, which I can usually hit humidity pretty spot on. We are expecting rain so raising humidity slowly so it doesn't spike.

    Great! I just want you to have a fantastic hatch.
    The world needs more Call ducks, in my opinion. [​IMG]
