Hey guys! This is my first time trying a hatch and so far, so good! Getting close to the finish line now!

So what brings me to your neck of the woods...
Set the duck eggs morning of Feb. 3
Lockdown due tomorrow morning.
Hatch day March 2
Does that timeline sound right?

I hadn't candled for a day or so and I was surprised to find 4 out of the 6 have internally pipped already. One even made a couple squeaks!! The other 2 are still showing signs of life, just haven't internal pipped yet.
I'm still turning and trying to maintain humidity of about 50%.

Should I go ahead and start lockdown today, or hold off for tomorrow?

These I have hatching are ducklings! Runner x Khaki Campbell!!

I'm hoping Mama Goose will do all the work for the goslings! This incubating stuff is as bad as being pregnant!
I will definitely post some updated pics when I have some fuzzies though!!
