    I couldn't resist giving my ducks one last candle, and two of them look like they're trying to push their beaks into the air cells. Lockdown is in approximately 23 hours (not that i'm counting *hem*), so should I leave them til then, or lock down early... The other 3 I have in there don't seem to be in any rush to get started, though all of the eggs are wobbling alot.

    Hopefully, this might mean I'll have a duck on/by Sunday [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thanks for the help!
