    We have ducklings!!! [​IMG] So far 3 out of 9 so there are 6 more to go. I see most of them have pipped and will probably be out by tomorrow morning. Now, my question is..... how long do I keep them in the incubator. I've done chicks but this is the first time doing ducks. OMG, they are soooooo cute. [​IMG]

    keep them there until they are dry & fuzzy. Then you can move them to the brooder! Congrats!

    Well, I moved 3 that hatched and they are snuggling up to each other. [​IMG] Well, they played first. #4 is getting ready to pop the hatch. So very cool. They are Indian Runners and I just love how they sit up on there knees...... LOL. [​IMG]
