    These guys hatched early Sunday morning. There are 5 total so far (still have one trying to hatch), but the other was still in the bator.

    Here are some 3 week pics of my pekin babies, Toot and Puddle (sorry, my 4 y/o named them!).

    Quote:They are supposed to be cayuga, but some may be mixed with rouen. I think one of them is mixed, as it has yellow on its feet. They are supposed to be pure black, or black with yellow bibs [​IMG] They are just beautiful when they are older!

    Cristian just loved them of course!! He loves baby anythings, but ever since he saw a pic of a black duckling he has wanted one.
    The other one still has not hatched, I keep peeling a little bit of shell away at a time. It almost looks like it is not ready to hatch? But I know it has been pipped since Friday, at least into the air cell. But I got to a part where it looks like I can see yolk still? And there was a little bit of blood then, so I wrapped it back up and put it back in the bator. But it is the last one, unless one of the others that is not 'full' is still alive. I had the bator die around day 8-ish, so it's hard to say. The others hatched right on time though, so that's weird. They were pretty cool to the touch Christmas morning when I noticed it. Hope the last one makes it out!!
