    I just went to move the eggs to the hatcher and while candling guess what I found?

    4 of the eggs where already starting to crack, 1 was internally pipped, and 1 looked ready to pip.

    Only 1 out of the 8 eggs failed to develop.

    It looks like I may have 7 new Black Runners coming in the next day or 2. [​IMG]
    (of course I can't count my duckies before they hatch)

    As of now 3 have hatched and are resting comfortably in the hatcher.

    Since they are 2 days early I have to scramble in the morning to get the brooder set up.

    Here are some pics of the first 2:

    I'll give everyone an update in the morning.

    Carole, that is condensation from the 80+ humidity.

    We now have 4 as of this morning, so I really ned to get the brooder up and running.
