We got our first bantam duck eggs this week! Of course, I *must* test them to make sure they are growing, right, even though I have two testers waiting to test them for me. (Plus that whole fear of "What if they stop laying before I can hatch any myself?! hehe) SO got the stuff I needed to make an incubator at the store yesterday. They were out of styrofoam coolers except one without a lid so I hopped on freecycle and asked for one. I'm picking up two today that came from Omaha Steaks and I think four more later this week. I should have plenty to last me a while! Now I just need to decide when I want to start incubating...how many must I have before I start...that is my only hard decision right now. I need to see how big the coolers are first and that may help me with my decision. I was thinking 12, but may not have enough room (they are bantam, though so the size of standard chicken eggs). Of course, knowing I have at least four more coolers coming makes me want to make more incubators and see what I can find for eggs to incubate!
