    So this setting was 7 of my call duck eggs...about halfway through I took out a weird/blood ring one...now today ALL 6 are hatching!!! Please send tons of good hatching vibes, because it would be so cool if all 6 make it out! I have helped them a little, but I always have to and they are all active and strong as of now...fingers-crossed!!![​IMG]

    So that would be 100% fertility and a 85% hatch!!!! Oh gosh don't jinx it!
