I have but one viable runner duck egg. I've been using my nifty new candler on it, that's how I know it's still viable.
Yesterday I could see the duckling moving a little.
This morning it was a very active little wriggler.
This evening it had pierced the inner mebrane, a necessary first step for breaking out of the egg.
I'm hoping tomorrow it will manage to get a beak out of the shell.
Oh yeah. And I'm a nervous wreck.
Did I mention that hatching can take days?? I think I'm going to pull out that dog-eared copy of Good Omens, pull out a chair next to the incubator, and make like an expectant father.
Pics to follow if I'm not shaking too hard to get good ones.
