    I will be sending all I hatch with my mom. I am almost at full capacity in my big coop so they are all yours. Lol

    thanks, this helps me alot.
    Q: do you turn your eggs right away? I have an auto turner, should I turn it on as soon as I set the eggs? I read somewhere that this person did not turn their shippped eggs right away, they waited for 3 or 4 days... have you heard this?
    Do you cool your duck eggs (starting on day 7-10) by taking the lid off for up to 30min 1x per day and then lightly spray before putting lid back on and heat on? i did this with my last batch.
    I seem to always loose 1/2 my live and viable eggs a day or 2 after i transfer them to my 2nd bator for Lockdown. I am wondering if i should just leave them in the 1st bator? I wash my hands and handle them carefully, they just quit after tansfer?? i cant figure it out??
    thanks
    P.S. here is a pic of 3 (so far) ducklings that have hatched from my broody ducks out in my duck house.... many more are coming!!

    I have one Saipan hatched! There are two others pipped. Can only see two silkie/showgirl pips, but am holding onto hope that the other good looking one catches up. There are three others in there that were iffy going into lockdown, one Saipan and two silkie//sg/
    shw
    @Hawk12 the two fluffy girls are getting along great with the niederrheiner and Biele's I put them in with.. I took them by my moms on the way home and showed them to her. She was so excited, because they are the color of the one she lost. Made me feel pretty good..
