The duck went to a farm today. Our staff gave the duckling a lot of attention, but it needed to go be with others just like him/her. We have another round of eggs in the incubator for our youth taking part in 4-H Embryology. The eggs were just set so we'll post an expected hatch date for you soon. Keep watching!
Thank you to Willie Strickland and GQF Manufacturing in Savannah, Georgia. GQF Manufacturing for designing and building a special incubator for us. This incubator lid has a large viewing area which enables us to see more of what's going on in the incubator during the hatch.
Day 7 of incubation. You'll see moving embryos, parts of the egg, what eggs look like when the embryo stops growing and eggs that were never fertile. View here.
Be sure to stop by and join us on the 4-H EGG Cam Facebook page!
