    The second egg that pipped on Tuesday hatched last night at 10:45. The one that pipped on Monday was still trying to hatch at 11 but this morning had died without really making much progress. I opened the egg and it was fully formed but there was a place that looked like it might not have fully absorbed the yolk but I'm not sure.
    It's a little Runner duck, looks a lot like it's Chocolate mommy but with silver/gold highlites. Daddy duck is whitish/grey and I forget what it's called.

    I'm loading them as we speak,, brought the card to work since we have high speed here! My mom is on incubator watch at home for me but I don't think the other two will hatch. One was alive and rocking last night but this one was violent it beat the crud out of all the other eggs in there.
