    Welcome to my "From egg to adult" journal!!:jumpy

    I will be putting six blue Swedish duck eggs in the incubator soon and
    I will be taking pictures of the eggs until they hatch and probably until they grow up. You are welcome to ask questions and give advice, although I may not be able to give you answers to some questions because this is my first time hatching anything.
    All I ask is that you don't be rude to anybody.
    WARNING:
    As you know this is my first time hatching ducks, so there may and there may not be any deformity in the ducklings, and there is a chance (theres always a chance with every hatching) that there will be a baby that fully form and die trying to get out of the shell, etc. I will be taking pictures of everything, for your education and for mine.

    ***(I will not be taking pictures from the 30th of June to the 8th if July, because I will be on vacation)***
    Thank you
    For reading
    This!

    I don't have the father so I can't give any pictures of him.

    Thank you again!

    *Day 2*
    No eggs today,
    Maybe she'll lay tomorrow.
    She's seems to have a pattern,
    Lay one day, next day take a brake,
    And then lay again.
    I did manage to candle one of my eggs.
