    Ok, you read the title [​IMG]

    I want to know what you're incubating and when it's due!! And who it's from, if someone on BYC, or just your own birds.

    I have 10 pekin duck eggs from JMajors, and 2 chinese/pilgrim goose eggs also from JMajors. Some are due Christmas Eve, some just went in yesterday!

    I also have 14 cayuga duck eggs from BackSwampGirl, that just went in tonight!

    In another bator [​IMG] I have 21 jumbo coturnix quail eggs from pop57, due on the 29th of this month!

    I have no chicken eggs cooking whatsoever at this time! Crazy I know! [​IMG]

    What's in your bator(s)? [​IMG]

    Quote:Yep!! [​IMG] 28 days unless they are 'scovies!

    Hey, I just checked out the Dec. Swap post, and your swapper said they might be muscovies, how ironic is that? Muscovy eggs take 35 days to hatch, mallard-based eggs take 28, and call duck eggs take 24. The person you got your eggs from said they could be scovies, cayuga, mallard or white mallard. So they could hatch anywhere from 28-35 days. You will have to keep a close eye on them, to see if they pip the membrane early. I wouldn't stop turning them too early, at least day 27, just in case they are scovies. Maybe the last few days just turn them once or twice, so it doesn't mess them up if they are due earlier. I can't believe they would send you eggs that they didn't even know what they were! Good luck, and I hope they hatch for you! [​IMG]
