    I got some eggs from DuckyBoys and lookie what happened!!

    The three white babies are from DuckyBoys's eggs, the black is from my own hen. I had two other whites hatch, one died the first few hours, one is acting a bit lethargic, but it is very warm in that room - maybe too warm for her.

    I am so happy to finally have some white call ducks.

    Now I just have to sort through the 15 call ducks I have to decide who gets to stay and who has to go to a new home. I am thinking I can reasonably keep 10 call ducks (before I have to build another duck pen [​IMG] )

    Quote:I had a really good hatch for shipped eggs (I need to leave feedback, keep forgetting) I got sent 14 eggs - two got cracked - two died early, but the 10 remaining I had half hatch (had 5 hatch, one died, four living).

    50% is great for shipped eggs - I've never had shipped eggs hatch so well.

    I usually have lousy luck hatching ducks - so part of that 50% is real testament to the eggs viability - cause I tend to kill them in the incubator.

    Good luck with them!
