    Oooops..should've told you guys. They're Indian Runners!! I got them from an awesome Ebayer who goes by Andreaseggs. There's another baby drying, one egg that never pipped and another one that is pipped and the baby is working to get out. I lost one baby who died trying to get out of its shell. [​IMG]

    I have Pekin's and White Call ducks so these guys will add some color. YAY!!

    I got my eggs from andreaseggs, also!

    All but one of mine hatched, he died trying to get out of the shell, too. [​IMG]

    Congrats on the babies!

    I'd try to take pics of my 20 day olds, but they think they're lapdogs.

    Here's some pics of the darker colored one. He/she has black feet. Any idea what color it is?

    The last one hatched and it's in drying off with the other one. The last egg never pipped. I removed it from the incubator and listened with my husband's stethoscope to see if I could hear any peeping, scratching, anything. Nope, not a thing.

    I decided to take a chance and try to open it from the air sac. It hadn't been punctured. I continued. The baby had died sometime before hatching. [​IMG]

    I do have 7 beautiful ducklings, though. I also have to say that the ebayer that I got them from...andreaseggs...she sent me 11 eggs. They were packed wonderfully. There were 11 eggs, 1 was horribly broken and 3 were cracked. I don't know how the post office managed it. She packs a box within a box. Her packaging was the best I've ever gotten. So I think they played football with my carton. I waxed the 3 cracked eggs. The 10 remaining eggs were fertile, 1 quit half way through.

    All 3 cracked eggs made it to hatch!!! Her fertility rate is amazing, especially with these eggs being shipped!! I highly recommend her if you want gorgeous Runners and a great experience!!
