    OMG!!! They are beautiful!!! What breed? I have 29 Cayuga egg in the incubator that are due in the next 3-4 days. If I end up with only three as cute as those I will be happy and feel successful. I have never tried hatching before.

    [​IMG] any idea what these might be. Saw them at a park by the coast. A lot of mallards around so I imagine someone sort of x. they are bigger than the drakes tho.

    It's day 24 for my duck eggs. There is suddenly a large difference between a few of the air cells and one of my eggs appears to have an internal PIP already... I'm starting to freak out...

    High temps and low humidity can result in early hatch. I believe Ducks can also take a couple days from internal pip to full hatch. Dont freak out too soon! It could he a long next few days. Good luck!

    Yes. Calm.
    Ok it's all good, I'm just overreacting ( first duck hatch ) temps have been steady, (99.4-100.4) so all is likely fine... Thank you.
