Batch 02 Recap
Batch 02 hatched 5/14 rather quickly, with the first one out of its egg around 5:20pm and 5 hatched by 1am on 5/15.
As usual, the large egg was later than the rest and I assisted around 10am on the 15th with a safety hole. By 4 pm no progress had been made and I assisted further. The duckling kicked itself out of the shell by 6pm and spent a full day along in the incubator because it had ripped off its umbilical cord and was bleeding during the hatch.
On to the numbers:
Eggs Developed/Eggs Set: 6/7 (85.7%)
