The hatch: Lots of sad news but just a few bits of good

Am only writing this now because this second hatch has been such a difficult and sad time, so different from last time. Only 3 ducklings have hatched, from 12 eggs. : ( One looks ok but the others are so weak – hopefully they will make it but I can’t say at this point that both will survive…

Despite almost all the eggs looking good when I candled them, egg after egg didn’t fully develop. If it had been this hard last time I never would have done it again!! Hopefully all 3 will be ok – two apricots and the weakest one, a chocolate bibbed. Check back soon for an update. I will post something as soon as I have definite news…
