    No my ducks are not allowed to hatch anything else until it warms up! One of my hens pulled a sneaky and hid 17 eggs on me, they hatched the first hard freeze we had. I had to take the unhatched ones away and put them in the rapidly heated bator to finish up. Lost 3 to freezing to death. Now I have one that wants to go broody and I keep taking her eggs and she's calling me nasty names in Runner Duck language. Good luck on yours, I love baby quacks!

    I have 13 cayuga eggs and 1 pekin egg in the bator, but they aren't due till the 10th and 12th. I also have some khaki duck eggs coming from PineBurrowPeeps, that should be here tomorrow or Friday. What kind do you have?

    ETA: I have 2 week-old baby pekins in a brooder, boy do they stink! [​IMG]
