    Something tells me this is going to be the busiest week of my life. We've just had a foal-see pics in pets and livestock, another foal due in 9 days or less, I have ducks hatching left and right, a couple more chicks due to hatch and then turkeys this weekend!!! And I'm trying to get my garden planted!!!! Ahhhhhh, I need about 5 clones of me. I'm going to get pics of the duckies as soon as they dry off a bit. So far, one white call and one black runner are out and about. Those calls are SOOOOOO cute! Who knew baby ducks could be that tiny? But I've got more pipping so I've gotta go peer through the glass some more and then go stare at the new baby horse and then dig a trench or two in the garden......

    Woo-Hoo! Congratulations and hang in there, this week will be over before you know it.

    Can I ask what you kept your humidity at? I just put duck eggs in the bator yesterday. Thanks!

    While they were in the incubator I ran the humidity at between 45 and 50. When I put them in the hatcher I ran the humidity up to 70.
