We wanted to add some more ducks to our flock of five this spring and instead of buying them thought it would be fun to hatch them ourselves. We started with 10 and three died early on. Then, this morning there was a pool of yolk under one that had started to break through. Still wondering what happened to that one.
So, of the six left it looks like four are going to hatch. Not bad for our first try, though, I think.
Anyway, the first one hatched about an hour ago and we're pretty excited. april '10 002.jpg april '10 003.jpg april '10 004.jpg april '10 005.jpg april '10 006.jpg april '10 007.jpg april '10 008.jpg
