Chicks and Ducklings

Our first ducklings hatched this week! We named them Paddles (II) and Cutie Pie.  OK, these two are not for sale, they are keepers for us!

But we have a bunch more eggs in the incubator, as well as my first batch of chicks got sent to lock down just yesterday, so we should have tons of chicks soon!

Of course, our first meat chicks are coming in a few weeks, too. so we'll be surrounded by babies of all types!

Here are our first little duckies!


As we go forward with hatching, you can see how things are progressing here. This spreadsheet shows what's in the incubator, what the fertility and hatching rates are and how many chicks we have available and how old they are.
