None have hatched yet... I think maybe I estimated the hatch date a few days early. I candled some of them this morning and their little beaks have broken through the air cell! So hopefully they will be hatching SOON!

Well, none have hatched yet, but currently 10 of the 11 have pipped, and some of them are zipping right around the shell!

Here are the ducklings parents:

I can't wait until they hatch!! I will post an update in the morning. Hopefully I will have some fluffy butts by then!!!
