    Im in the middle of incubating 8 duck eggs and all are doing good! I was just wondering if anyone else is incubating some eggs right now?

    Im incubating 2 duck rouen eggs for a friend, and 6 rouen X khaki campbell mutt eggs for myself... What are you incubating?

    Hey Duckgirl! I'm getting ready to put 10 more in the bator. My "lagging behind in egg production" mallard decided to pop one out today! Woo Hoo!

    Plus I have the 8 due next week, and the 2 due a week after that.

    Well, that's a good question...

    I sold the 8 due next week. The 2 random ones due the next week, I think I'll vent-sex and keep any females.. Then the 10 I have to put in the bator I have sold too. So, basically if there are females in those 2 random ones I'll hang onto them, if not I'll throw them in with the next 10 going out. Or I may just keep the 2!!

    I need a bigger place. [​IMG]

    HA! Good point. No, I started with 14 and threw out 4. The woman that bought them wants 10 but oh well, She said she'll take what I get. But yes, I guess I am kinda counting them before they hatch. They look so good though!!

    PS: I may have just bought more eggs in auction. I gotta stay out of that place!
