Duckling Diary Weeks 2 - 4

Week 2
We added 12 hen eggs this week. Chicks take one week less than ducklings to hatch out. We noticed that hen eggs were more of a peachy colour compared to the white/pale blue duck eggs.

 Weeks 3 - 4
We ensure our incubator is on and at right temperature. We fill it with water every 2 days to ensure there is moisture inside. We notice it going back and forth. Paul called to do 'candling' with us. This is where we look inside the egg. We use a dark box and a torch. We notice the air sac, a dark spot (duckling/chick) and veins.
