    Thanks, Angie! I really hope you get to share a moment like this as well, its great. The best thing is when she takes them for their first swim, its awesome!

    Gump, I most definitely will! I'll be out there for quite a while tomorrow so I'll be taking lots of pics!

    Thanks, Jody! both Papa's are waiting! I am, but the father of these ducklings doesnt even know where their mother is! She vanished a month ago and he is a loner now. He will be so happy to see her again!

    Quote:Waterfowl eggs take 28 days to incubate. Ducks and geese often take 2 days to hatch after they pip. Helping a stuck baby out can be a good thing. Hatching them because you think they are ready is often disasterous and fatal.
