    Eggs have been internally pipped for 24 hours. I put a safety hole into the eggs as no external pips have happened yet. One egg even hadn’t had any noticeable movement since last night. Egg number two even was peeping at me.

    Three made it to actually hatch egg 4 died in shell. But as I am going to bed three little dark ducklings are squirming out of shells and should be there in the morning!

    Congrats on your hatch!! I’m sorry for your loss of the one little guy. :( Do you know why he didn’t make it? Was he malpositioned?

    Where’s our pics?! Haha

    Mine are only a few days behind yours. This is making me so nervous!

    They are currently in cups right now as they had what I call yolk bumps on their belly this morning. But I have pictures of them in their cups.

    I didn’t want them dragging their belly around. So I figured this was the safest way when I cannot watch them while at work.

    Egg 4 look like he pipped into his yolk and passed. Was sad. But these three were peeping a bunch this morning.

    Here is baby 3 all out of its shell.

    Baby two has a membrane cement holding it’s one wing to its body. It has me a little worried.

    Baby six is still in the cup but is getting not having membrane problems. I am keeping in the cup a few more hours then I will let it sit on it’s side to finish kicking out.

    Baby from egg six kicked out of his cup. The peeps from baby 3 really got it worked up.
