    I heard heartbeats inside three eggs. This morning, one pipped and is getting MUCH further along fast! From what I can see it looks to have a golden head and a dark body. If these three hatch that would be 3/8 which isn't bad at all for my first time with duck eggs AND they are shipped, so that's pretty cool. I'm skipping today (bad me) so I'll update throughout the day and hopefully get some pictures If I don't forget!

    Ok. Well baby was slinging himself around in his shell and finally busted out! I was literally dancing around outside the bator singing about ducks! Then I noticed a lot of blood around him. What the h$LL IS THIS? It looks like a bubble on his bottom with an open end and blood coming out. I'm really worried. He seems active and is trying to move around. Do you think it had to do with it too-fast hatch? Can a hatch be too fast? I thought he was really active and looked healthy and then I saw the blood...
