    Today is day 32 for me. All but two eggs have hatched. One of the two that are left has pipped, and I don't think my one Sebbie egg is going to do anything. The ducks I have are flying out of their shells though![​IMG]

    I had 2 sebbi hatch out yesterday, it was on day 29.
    1 duck hatched with in hours of the sebbi and 3 hatched buy midnight and 1 finished hatching this afternoon around 4pm
    very nerve wracking hatch. I didnt think the 5th duck was going to make it out of the shell, when it finally dragged its little self out the yolk sack wasnt completely absorbed and it looked like it had a big belly button.
    it seems to be doing fine now, fingers crossed.

    I have my fingers crossed for you![​IMG]
    I never figured I would get any of my eggs to hatch, so now they all seem to be hatching:D I am up to 5 Saxonies and two Cayuga, plus the 3 Toulouse. I also have more eggs in the bator due to hatch next week, plus some mystery ducks I put in last week. I am going to be overrun with ducks and geese!
    I had a couple of duckling with their navels a little open. They seem to be closing up now and the babies are happy and eating and drinking.

    What do I do if they come out with their navals open? Sounds scary![​IMG]

    As far as the navels go, I left them alone and they look fine now. Took about 48 hours to close up.
    I had a duck that pipped on monday, and it finally hatched sometime early this morning. It is doing fine. I would just leave the pipped one alone. From what I have read they will get out eventually. My last goose to hatch took a very long time as well.
