    Day 28 for my pekins and I came home from work and each of my 2 eggs had a pip! When I started talking to them I saw one of them make a second pip and it started chirping! I am BEYOND excited and hoping that all continues to go well! For my duck experts, how long do they usually take from pip to hatch. Also, am I supposed to leave them in the bator until they both hatch? How long should I leave them in before I move them to the broader? Until they are dry, right? I knwo I have read this before, but nwo that I am going through it I want to make sure I do everything right! [​IMG]
