    [​IMG] URG!!

    K, so we hatched out 4 ducklings by Wed, and on Wednessday night the bator some how got unplugged!! [​IMG] [​IMG] We had five eggs left in there. So, when I went down to check on things at 6 AM, the bator had condensation in it and it was soooo cold [​IMG] I thought we had lost everthing!!

    That day, two ducklings hatched!! And one pipped. Now, we have one pipped egg (which is pipping at the small end of the egg, not in the air space- what should we do??) and two apparently dead eggs.

    It could have been more of a disaster, I guess. But, I am still sad!!
