my first try at hatching eggs was a bust - my bator spiked twice and i lost both of my duck eggs last time - so I tried again with 5 more eggs - I had three that showed growth and the other two for whatever reason had bloodrings.
I have never done this before so I was scraied the whole time LOL and when I saw that first egg pip and hatch I started to cry I was so happy ! the baby was born with yoke still hanging out but she is doing great this morning.
I cant wait to see pics of your baby
( my eggs were from my own flock - they are "muttducks" )
