    On Easter Sunday I started my adventure into hatching out Black East Indies I ordered from eBay. They sat almost two days not turned in an incubator.

    Today I did a candle and I think I have 4 live ones. Mainly because I could see a little heartbeat in 4 of them. I have 3 that are questions.

    But here they are at day 4

    5 and 7 don't look promising.
     
  4. I concur. #7 is a definite loss, but I would hold on to #5 a couple more days just to be sure. I've had some slow growers recently that I would have thrown out on day 5 had I not been patient. Good luck with the hatch!

    I thought 7 had passed but wasn’t certain on it. I will give 5 till Sunday but I was thinking it was a clear.

    Thanks everyone!

    I'd hold off tossing for a few more days. Since those pictures were taken on day 4, it's still very early yet :) Give them until at least a week along before pulling any, I would say.

    Aside from 5 and 7, the rest look great, so that's awesome.

    Day 5 of my East Indie Adventure. I have started misting once a day starting last night. Egg 7 Was dead dead today. So I removed it. Here are the others.

    Egg 1 IMG_2773.JPG Had a heart beat today.

    Egg 2 IMG_2774.JPG Much larger today.

    Egg 3 IMG_2775.JPG Good heart beat.

    Egg 4 IMG_2776.JPG Larger today but can't see a heart beat.

    Egg 5 IMG_2777.JPG All clear still

    Egg 6 IMG_2778.JPG Largest little lump so far.

    I am currently debating on if I want to get another 6 eggs to incubate of these little ducks. I have read that they can be harder to hatch. Still debating on if I should based on that knowledge.
