well it feels like it has been forever waiting for these eggs to get to this point. I am hopeing by this weekend to have 3 little "muttducks" from my own flock. I will stop turning them tonight add as much water as needed and cross my fingers and sit on my hands - and try not to fog up the windows breathing on them while my face is hovering above the bator.

I think I have everything I need in the spare room - there is a computer in there, I have my camera, I have towels, the brooder set up, the potty is just down the hall ( so i dont have to go far
) - blankets and pillows for me - snaks anything else I need?

I am so nervous - about this - I have been reading all the other posts about hatching eggs and think I can do this


wish me luck - I am going to need it

ok last night during the last turning of the eggs I took the time to put in a fresh shelf liner, add water to the wells, I have a dish with water in it but was afraid the baby's would somehow get in there and drown so I took a washcloth rolled it up and put it in there to soak up the water and help keep the humidity up. I also candled them one last time - and all three were moving in there - the air cells look great - one of the ducks has a larger cell then then the others but he was still wiggling in there, two of the cells are not right at the end put kinda off center a little not bad just not perfectly at the end - I think they will be fine though.


Day 26 today -- I woke up and took a look in the bator to check the temp and stare at my eggs ( DID NOT open the bator ) LOL - this is going to be the longest weekend of my life



oh well I can either
and watch them or
to not to think about it ( yea right)
