    Long story short, my broody stopped sitting half way so I rushed the eggs into the incubator. 2of 1 kind looks like it will be ready on time this Friday. BUT the 3 polish are developing slower. Still developing but maybe another week after these.
    I only have the 1 incubator and no more broody hens.
    Will they survive the lockdown???????????

    I just recently hatched duck eggs. We had kinda the same thing happen. Our duck hatched a baby and the others were a week behind. We successfully hatched 2 a week later. The other 2 we are unsure. How many eggs doubly have?

    My last hatch (first in several years) was staggered over about 5 days, ironically the last put in the incubator had the best hatch percentage. I was encouraged by others to just do it. I have eggs going in the same way this time, hoping for a better result (new genesis bator)

    Good luck!
