    Our hatch day is over and the final results are in!

    9 out of 10 eggs! Even had one surprise us! They were all hatched and dried so we started removing from the incy and throwing out shells. I picked up the two eggs that hadn't done anything but one felt really light. I started lookin at the light one and it had a pip! Well I had removed it though and yes she was shrunk wrapped. [​IMG] So I peeled the shell off, and soaked her down with warm water. Put her back in the incubator & quickly rose the humidity back to 80%. It took me wetting her down 3 times, but next morning she was ready to go! Now you can't even tell her apart from her siblings.!

    Quote:We had one last year get stuck and had to help. She's our worst mama now, won't go broody & tears up the other girls nests. [​IMG] I read somewhere that if you help they won't make good ducks. ??? IDK if thats true or not, but for it is. [​IMG] We have Bug our one that made it out of 27 eggs. She's our inside girl and she's special ha ha!
