    So doing rounds tonight as the sun was going down, and found an egg in the nest with the grey call trio.

    It is very weird. I figured ours was due to where we live.

    Duckgirl, no we won't be hatching any of them, will check for fertility though. By this weekend the large bator will be half full.

    My ButterScotch and Chocolate duck are laying and I'm collecting some of their eggs to put in my new incubator that I got on Monday! :eek:)
    I thought I would add a picture that I took last week. [​IMG]
