    It's day 25 lockdown day. For my Pekin rouen cross eggs. Without really looking at the eggs I put them in a carton while I prepare the incubator for lockdown(taking out the turner putting a liner in and sponges) I then when to candle the eggs. The first one I candles had an international pip! Then I went to get the next and noticed that 5 out of 9 eggs have external pips!
    Omg it's only day 25! And I took my time getting the incubator ready for lockdown
    I quickly got them in and got the humidity up to 76%
    Are they going to be okay?

    hmm crazy duckies, it must be the year of early hatches a lot of hatches of ducks and chicks have seemed to be early this year.
