    Thought I might get some response with that topic. I am getting ready to hatch some ducks this week. I set them the morning of April Fools Day (or the night before, I can't remember) So, like chickens, do I need to stop turning them? What does my Humidity need to be? It's been at 55% in a Brinsea for the three weeks. Is hatch day Wed, Thurs. or more like Friday? HELP [​IMG]

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    Stop turning the 26th, bump humidity up to 70-75%, should hatch Tuesday.

    Sorry...I just had to post to tell you how much I loved your title!

    Now then, I wonder if we have any youngins that are going to make me feel ancient by not knowing what in the world that came from. [​IMG]

    Perhaps I'm a youngin, but assume its from Gone with the wind? I've never seen it but I know my parents once told me my name came from the movies, house, plantation name, something!
    Good luck with your ducklings! I can't wait for mine to hatch, post pics please

    btw what type are you hatching?
