    Two more ducklings piped so thats four total! Two more are piping, and the final 7th egg isn't doing anything. So with a little luck, I could possible have an 85/90% hatch rate for the ducklings! That sure beats my last two chick hatches, COMBINED! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    This morning, I woke up to a second duckling born, and well, he seems to have a problem with one of his eyes? He can open it about a 1/4 of the way but cant open it all the way. He looks completely healthy, but that eye worries me. Maybe it's just stuck?

    I had that with a duckling. 24 hours later the eye was normal.
