    I have 5 duck eggs due either tomarrow or friday. So far i have not seen any movement or heard any noise. Is this a bad sign? Have i killed my babies?!? I'm so nervous! I pray at least a few hatch! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] And now hear comes the wait! [​IMG] I dont know if i will be able to take it!

    I just hatched 3 ducks about a month aho. I didn't think they were going to hatch. But one morning I woke up and 3 little guys were in the bator! Just make sure you raise the humidity to about 92ish and they should hatch! Good luck! lemme know if you get any duckies along with some pics!

    don't panic! if your windows are foggy you are probably good. chances are, if you haven't calibrated your hygrometer... it is probably off. remember to do that before you start another hatch. any pips yet? i have one. [​IMG]
