Hey y'all, First off, I have to let you know I am in highschool, so I know very little about what I am doing. I live in the city and have very little experience with poltry! So, that being said, I have two Cayuga ducks. They were sent to me as a joke and I decided to keep them and try to raise money for college. I have put in weeks of research, but I still feel overwhelmed by what is happening. Last week, Rue began to lay. Yes, last week, in OCTOBER! I thought that this would not happen, so I am very worried all of my other research information may turn out to be false. I went out and bought a Little Giant bator with the automatic turner for when I am at school. I have a small tray of water (the container I got my chinese food in a few weeks ago) and the temp is between 99 and 101 degrees. It does not fluctuate a lot, but I do notice small changes every four to five hours. All of the eggs are set on the smaller, pointier end so that the little air bubble is at the top. It's 10/22/12 and she layed her first egg on 10/18/12. I want to make sure that I am doing my best to give these eggs life. What more can I do? How small is the lung that I should be seeing when I candel? When do I begin candeling? How often should I candel? How can I encourage my ducks to give me more fertile eggs? Any tips you can offer are greatly appreciated! Thank you for reading such a long entry! ~Tori C.
