    It's so exciting isn't it? [​IMG]

    I have 5 Indian Runner duck eggs in my incubator right now, due to hatch tomorrow! Last time I checked the water channels and candled the eggs quick (I stop opening the 'bator after the first pip, but until then I check on them constantly [​IMG] ) I had 3 pipped into the air cells, and the other two I can just see moving around in there (not internally pipped yet), positioning themselves to hatch. [​IMG]

    I'm really hoping that this will be my first 100% hatch, and I'm crossing my fingers for your hatch to be a great success too! [​IMG]
