    The 8th ducky is almost hatched out. The 9th one pipped on the wrong end, but is still working its way out of the shell. We may assist it after the 8th one is out. Eggs 10 & 11 never externally pipped. We checked them and they were both at the wrong end too.

    First 3 duckies are in the brooder. They are eating, drinking and getting their legs under them fast. [​IMG]
