Ducks aren't due til Sunday - I HAVE A PIP!!!!!
Hey, news like this makes those poor 'late hatchers' feel like those poor pregnant women past their due date (which is most of them) when they hear about the "lucky duck" who has their baby ten days early.
Quote: Thanks! I was shocked! And I am glad to see you are still around
That's great! I'd rather have early pips than no pips!
That sounds about right to me. I run my temps about half a degree above the recommendation, and it turns out early hatches with vigorous ducklings for me about a day early pretty consistently.
Also, I usually get a pip about two days before the actual hatch, so a pip today will probably be a duckling Saturday so if the rest pip tomorrow... you'll still have most of your babies on Sunday.
Quote:I understand one day early - this is FOUR!
This is my first hatch from my own pekin eggs too and only 2 out of 6 made it to the CHICKEN lockdown. HAHAHAHA! 7 of the chicks hatched and I didn't expect the ducks til at least Sunday morning, as day 28 is 7 pm Sunday.
Has anyone warned you of how stinky hatching ducks is.......
