    [​IMG] Call ducklings are the CUTEST ducklings ever! Just wait till they get to be adults they will be louder than a train! [​IMG]

    They are both pipped! [​IMG] I came home and started talking to them and they were both talking back! [​IMG] I see their little bills. I added a little more water & misted them--the humidity had dropped to 53%!

    Any progress? [​IMG]

    Oh and I know about the call ducks....[​IMG] Although DH doesn't (yet). [​IMG] I have to find someone to build me a call duck pen. [​IMG]

    Nope. I managed to raise the humidity up though...and now I'm just waiting on the babies! [​IMG]

    Aww... they are so cute!!! [​IMG] Not to hyjack the conversation but the LS are doing great. Any secret on telling m/f? They are 6 weeks now. In a week they are going to live with the gander! (only for a little while).

    I am new to the goose thing, they are so cute!!! You must be a proud mommy!

  8. Quote:Glad to hear they are doing well...if you can post pics of them I'll give it my best guess...other than comb/wattle development, males will be larger (overall) and have thicker legs.

    I wonder if the air around your incubator is really dry?
    I hope all your scovys hatch! [​IMG] I've tryed to incubate and hatch muscovy eggs without any luck [​IMG]

    Muscovies are tricky...but not quite as hard as geese, IMO. Yes, we live in the desert pretty much (we have sagebrush & wildfires here). The house humidity was actually around 40% today which is high.
