    3 of my duck eggs took almost 48 hrs to zip with a little help from me.

    P.S. the 3 ducklings im refering to, hatched on day 31... I thought they were not going to make it, that is why I helped out a TINY bit. I just peeled away the shell where they had piped. Duck shells are sooo tough, I thought they were having a hard time breaking/zipping, so i helped a little. It worked out ok, they are here. actually country lovin has one of them. :jumpy

    Semi emergency question, does anyone have an empty bator? My mother in law's broody quit on Day 3 of incubation..... She lives in Rathdrum, but I'm going out there tomorrow. I could trade chicks hatched or fertile eggs after the hatch, or even pay 20 bucks to rent it.

    I have plenty of space. Working tonight, going thru Rathdrum at about 7:30 am tmr morning, meeting at 2:00, I could go back home before work and take them if they can wait that long.

    OMG Yes! But I'm at work!!! aaahhh! I was going to say I could incubate them and slip the 5 goose eggs i just purchased in with them lol!

    Too bad my hubby wouldn't have any friggen clue about washing/sterilizing the bator!

    Edit: i get off work at 10:30 pm, get into Rathdrum area at 11 if anyone is awake that late...

    I'm not sure she wants them to travel, but I'll call her later and find out. [email protected] would you be comfortable setting the bator up at her place? I visit weekly and can check on eggs.

    Sure, it doesn't have a turner. It's a cheap LG want to be, when should I take it to her? I don't want to disrupt anyone's sleep! LOL
