    Can you tell I'm a newbie.
    Both eggs made eggcellent progress te past few hours. Egg 1 pipped over 24 hours ago and egg two pipped last night. Egg 2 seems to have taken the lead in zipping out. Here it is 1130 and I can't go to bed because I'm afraid something will happen overnight.
    Egg 1 is tuckered out. He had a great burst of energy and we were all huddled over the bator calling out to him to just do it but alas he is snoozing and I'm posting. Ha!
    Cross fingers they get this show on the road. It's been a LONG day here. [​IMG]

    The "blob of stuff" in the shell is just waste material produced by the duckling while inside, perfectly normal. ;)

    Congrats on your two new little ones!

    Adorable little guy! ^-^

    Yep, that's the normal poo-goop they tend to leave in their eggs. Pretty gross, I agree. ;)
