    On April 27th I put 2 Mallard duck eggs in my incubator, so that means they should be do the 25th of this month?!?!?! Correct? Well I candled them a few days ago, and they were all black, with a huge air bubble, which I found weird, because they weren't due for a week.. And I just now candled them and one is in the air bubble pipping!! He is very active, but will it be okay since its early? They take a few days to hatch so it won't be too early, but still.

    One hatched out last night, completly fine and healthy, and the other one has pipped and he is peeping every once in a while.

    I think they willl be all right :)
