Sorry, bad Star Trek reference.............
So last year we bought an incubator and hatched chicks from our Delawares, gooslings from our Buff geese and some turkey eggs from a fiend. I was HOOKED!
Last year I purchased 11 Pekin ducklings with the intention of keeping a few breeders and harvesting the rest. Fast forward almost a year and the ducks are laying eggs and we are seeing mating behavior. Last week we started saving duck eggs.
A week later we have 28 to go in the incubator :) The incubator is warmed up, filled with water and ready to go.
Pekin eggs are supposed to take 28 days to hatch. 25 days at temp and being turned then 3 days in lock down.
I am loading the incubator today Tuesday January 21st. Join us on this adventure. We will update the blog with this clutches progress.
