    I went into lockdown tonight with 5 Saxony duck eggs that I got from someone here. I am so excited. Several of the eggs I candled tonight before I locked down had distinct movement inside the shells. It was so wonderful to see. I can't wait for my little babies.

    Anything different about ducks hatching than chicks? Other than it took a week longer to cook them.

    Humidity needs to be higher for hatching with ducks- up to around 80% if you can get your machine that high. Happy hatching.
