    Well I was outside most of the evening getting my Honey bees into their hives...and I just got in and went up into my room.....I HAVE ONE MUSCOVY DUCKLING OUT! The eggs aren't due to Friday soo not sure what inspired this little one to come so early. But he/she looks very healthy. And is mostly a yellow/cream.
    Can't wait to see what color he/she grows into!
    I will update with pics later!

    I will get some pics uploaded today....Also the other three eggs look like they are up to hatch day...but still no pipping or rocking really. I'm not losing hope in them...as all the signs look right..large aircells and pitch black everywhere else. Hoping they might just be running a little late since the first duckling was soo early.

    I think the other eggs are pretty much done. I'm gonna leave them in the bator for a day or two....but now just trying to find some scovy ducklings locally....even spent the day going to Amish farms lol.

    Called the local Agway and ordered 4 White Muscovy ducklings from Hoffman Hatchery!
    They won't be here for two weeks but at least that is something!
