    my silkie has now successfully hatched one call duck duckling today.

    There were originally 7 eggs, two were not viable, one disappeared for some unknown reason, one of the 4 that were left under her I also believe is a dud, one hatched, and the other two I believe are still good even tho I haven't seen a pip. Hopefully at least one other egg hatches so the duckling has a buddy along with silkie mom. I will post pictures once all the eggs have hatched! Stay tuned!! I LOVE hatch day!!!!

    Still waiting for duckling number 2 before I post a picture...Number 2 has been working hard at it since last night. I am hoping to see it tomorrow morning...Yesterday's duckling is doing well, but getting restless....I was right and the other two eggs are duds.
