    We just finished hatching our first batch of duck eggs. We had 2 little eggs that were supposed to hatch out 2 weeks ago and only 1 did. (He has been my constant companion since!)

    Then we had 9 that were due over the past couple of days. 7 of the 9 made it out and are thriving! We decided to leave the last two eggs for another day.

    So, of a total of 11 eggs we had 8 that made it. I think that is pretty good for not having a clue what we were doing!

    Someone on this forum wrote that this is addicting, I am inclined to agree!

    I've got a while to wait for mine, as they have only been under the hen for 10 days. Waiting is sooooo hard.... [​IMG]
