First off, these two lovely people were nice enough to help feed my new hatching addiction: ducks!! I have gotten a total of 13 SQ pekin duck eggs and 6 chinese/pilgrim goose eggs from JMajors, two different sets. First was 5 duck and 4 goose. None of the goose eggs made it very long, if at all, and 2 of the duck eggs quit early. 3 pekin duck eggs went to the hatcher today, and 2 of them are moving around in there! Second set was 8 duck and 2 goose. The P.O. was not very nice to this set, as there were 2 duck and 1 goose egg that were broke on arrival One of the duck eggs had only a crack that was visible when candling, but I could not feel it upon scratching with my nail. So I set 7 duck and 1 goose. Out of these eggs, they are now on day 6, and there are 5 duck eggs and 1 goose egg that have good veins!! The one that was cracked is holding on strong!! The other 2 duck eggs have one that looks like a quitter, and one that looks clear. BackSwampGirl sent me a total of 15 eggs from her cayugas and rouens. All arrived in perfect shape. Upon candling one was found out to be a double yolker, so this one is going into a nice cake batter! Out of the 14 eggs that were set in the bator, I have 12 little wigglers! The other two eggs are both clear. I think one had a bit of rough handling from the P.O., cause the yolk is free-floating, and not developing. These eggs are only on day 4, but they have very good veins!! I promise not to candle again for a week, and I will keep you both (and anyone else who cares to read) updated on how they do!! Keep your for me and my little quackers!!
