I candled the second lot of eggs for the first time this evening. (Shone a bright light through them to check their development.) All 12 look fertile! Hurrah!!
Here’s a photo of one of them:
Not the best photo you’ll ever see of a candled egg but hard doing it by myself. (Next week, Day 14, I’ve someone with me which will make life much easier. Thanks Nicky!)
The photo shows the developing network of blood vessels and a mass (centre right) that is the embryo, just 7 days old : )
There are potentially 5 Chocolate Bibbed, 5 Apricot and 2 White Call ducks : )
… Meanwhile the current six ducklings are getting bigger and Bigger and BIGGER!!!!
