    Awww, thanks!


    Yay! I'm excited. I've done pretty good with shipped eggs. My last batch I got them all to develop but a little less then half died around lockdown. It's disappointing! She specializes in splash, which I don't have and she's NPIP. I've never hatched ducks! I can't wait till next spring! Have you hatched them?

    I know, right? I wish I had a big farm with a pond! That's my dream!

    Yep, I've hatched several Calls... all from shipped eggs... they are much harder to hatch than regular eggs even when not shipped... but they are soooo worth it...

    OMG...love the pictures!! They are beautiful!! That last pic is just as cute as the baby pictures! I've read because their bills are so small that they need assistance at hatch time. Is that what you mean?? Are they really friendly with you?

    Yes, they usually need assistance, that's part of it... getting them to internal pip is hard too...
    They imprint really easy and are super friendly... the last one ended up being a single hatch, so she's extremely imprinted and super snuggly...
    When you get eggs I can give you some advice if you want it, and I have a friend who can help too... :)
