In the Brooder
- Feb 10, 2012
My ancona began sitting 28 days ago, so far there is no sign of ducklings. She started with 15 eggs and with a nest change where she only took 7 of the eggs with her about mid way though. We are down to 4 eggs from the original 15 due to a couple dark smelly ones and one cracked one that hadn't developed a few days ago. Is there any hope that any of those 4 will hatch if it is day 28 and no pipping of the shells (that I can tell) I haven't really seen any movement either, but the momma really won't stay off of her nest long enough for me to watch them really.
