Page 1 - The Ducklings - Laying Eggs

A group of duck eggs are laying in a hole next to a barn.

We were very surprised to find a bunch of duck eggs out next to the barn so late in the season. The ducks had started laying an egg or two a day and were not sitting on them. I decided to get an incubator.

A white styrofoam incubator that has all the eggs in it.

Five days later the incubator arrives and the first batch of eggs are placed in it.

Duck eggs are in an open incubator. One of the eggs is beginning to hatch.

28 days later to my surprise, I notice the eggs are starting to hatch!
