    So day 21 is tmrw, the wait is torture!!! This is worse than waiting for Christmas morning!! No one is rocking, no peeping, no pipping!! I've checked the bator at least 12 times already this am! Kinda glad that I have to go to work this afternoon for a bit, just to get me out of the house........[​IMG]

    How exciting! I have 6 baby ducks in my incubator due to hatch March 13th and 12 under my broody female due a couple days after that! The first time I hatched I spent the whole hatch day sitting next to the incubator. I drove myself nuts! I know the feeling. Is this your first time hatching? What are you hatching? Don't forget to take pictures and post them! [​IMG]

    Good for you! I hatch duckies, but from what heard on here people have some difficulties with Ameraucanas and getting them all the way to the hatch.
    I was so excited last year when I hatched my first time (Khaki ducks). I knew they wouldn't, but for some reason I was expecting them to hatch out all cute, fluffy, chirping and walking around...boy was I WRONG! lol. They were bald, but hairy at the same time..red, and falling over like they were drunk..lol. Atleast I know what I'm going to be seeing when mine hatch next month. LOL! [​IMG]
