    Cool! These are my first ducks too. I candled last night and saw little legs kicking. What breeds do you have? I got a mix of Khaki Campbells, Rouen, and Black East Indians.

    It looks like I have 2 of the Black East Indians so far and 3 of the Rouens developing. The balance of the eggs were Khaki Campbell and all but two of those are developing. I need to weed out and count the good eggs to be sure of my numbers.

    i have Rouen x Magpie,

    I do have BEI, but no eggs yet,

    though i do need more BEI girls i have 1 girl and the other 3 ended up being boys, [​IMG]

    its cooler than candling chicken eggs, with the Rouen and magpie, you can see almost everything going on inside [​IMG]

    I will get some pics together of the parents,

    I just had 2 pekins and 2 pekin x rouens hatch on the 6th. Then, I had 3 welsh harlequins hatch last night and I have 3 more hatching right now. It's so fun!

    Quote:I noticed that. Khaki Campbells are that way too. [​IMG] I loved seeing those little feet kick.

    With chicken eggs, I can see more on the white ones. I just rarely have any white ones.

    Ooooh! I hope your hatch goes well! It's always kind of bitter sweet getting the babies after the parents have gone.
