    Wow I love them! They're gorgeous! :)
    Same. And desserts.
    Well, I don't knowfor sure but the person I was quoting had said to be careful or that they don't buy feed there because it tends to be old or bad. So far I have had good luck but something to think about. Although this new feed I just switched too TSC doesn't carry it.
    Love them!! So cute!!

    Captains Log - Day 29, Part 2
    2 eggs have pipped. In the air cells; in the correct position. That is at least a start. We had about 5 power outages, among many other challenges) this hatch so maybe they are just delayed?

    Posted earlier today: Captains Log - Day 29, Part 1
    I have 3 duck eggs that are still rocking. No pips. No peeps. No progress. I will keep them in the incubator for a few more days or if I smell something funky. At this point, however, I am not that optimistic that there will ducklings at our house this week.
    I am crushed, disappointed and feel a little bit like a failure. I think the humidity was just too low. I may try again and join the May HAL (my husband told me to give it another shot).

    I had to help the last chick of this hatch. It hatched around 2:00 this afternoon. There was 1 pip that died., and 4 that didn't pip. 4 healthy chicks and this last one that still isn't fluffy. We are on day 23. Bumbed that my Brinsea temps are so far off compared to the other one I have.

    I've had issues with my small Brinsea too. I tried to hatch eggs in it, they were fine until lockdown and then died. Then I had another set in my styrobator that were doing fine. I locked them down in the small Brinsea because they were banti chicks and I didn't want them banging around with the bigger chicks, and they all died too. I'm boxing that one up for now, and will stick to my styrobator Good luck with your hatch!
