    I was wondering how you and Gilbert (aka Ducky) were doing. I hope you get your baby ducks soon! They take their time hatching from what I've seen on BYC.

    Yeah around 28 days... so excited. Gilbert i think is mad at me [​IMG]. Cuz he knows theres other chickens/ducks around and he sees me pick them up(i dont handle then to much for thier safety) and now i think he jealous [​IMG]

    There is a wild duckling I officially named "Ducky" and he kinda responds to it. I used to call him the "lost" duckling because he disappeared for a while and I thought he was gone for good (I thought the hawks caught him). But, he showed up a few weeks later and even still had a fuzzy behind, too..

    as you also see in the pic theres is 2 mores eggs, the one on the right is the duck soon to hatch in i would say 30 min because hes almost broke all the way thorugh. But the tiny egg in the left i think in a ginny agg. dunno how you spell ginny but im not sure if its going to hatch cuz i dont know what temp and humidty ginny eggs need to be at. Dident know it was a ginny egg till about 5 days ago. by now its too late. hope it will hatch tho. if not theres nothing i can do about it [​IMG]
