27 days ago I put 10 Khaki Campbell eggs into the incubator and this morning the eggs began to hatch! I candled the eggs at day 7 and found that one was not fertilized - the white shells make the candling so much easier than the green or blue chicken eggs from the Americaunas that I hatched this year.
So far we have two tiny ducklings! We had the chance to actually witness duckling #2 hatching. I still can't believe how a living creature can emerge from inside an enclosed egg - a miracle!
Tomorrow morning I will transfer these babies to a brooder box and give them something to eat and drink. And of course make their photographic debut!
