    well 16 days down and 11 more to go !! these ducks better be cute to make this wait worth it LOL

    I candle them every other night - just because it is so darn cool ! and they were very active but the past few days they are not moving as much but they are growing and they are moving alittle - is that normal for them to not be so active - it is not like they are running out of room yet.
    I can see a nice air cell in each egg, nice looking veins, but I swear I see two things moving in there - what am I seeing? these are not double yokers so I know there is only one baby - but I cant really make out what I am looking at- and since this is my first time - I am clueless [​IMG] but I am very happy that of the 5 eggs I have 2 babies growing in there. and one of these eggs was in the frig for a few days before I went into the bator - so that is pretty cool

    so when do I stop turning duck eggs ? if all goes well they should be hatching March-19 [​IMG]
