  • Sheldon
    took Jess to visit Liz who is in Bristol doing a degree now and Jess came back with her first pair of wellie boots Very handy for the weekends when she often lets us ducks out with her Daddy March David has promised some duck eggs to friends at work and so he separated our parents from the rest of us for ease of egg collection Our mums however were not playing ball and so he has let them back out after there wasn t a single egg from them in captivity On the 8th it was so sunny that Caroline and Jess spent an hour in the garden with us Jess enjoyed picking dandelions and herding us see above and Caroline relaxed on cushions heavy with Baby Bump who is due next month Saturday the 17th saw Granny babysitting for the morning She and Jess let us out and played in the garden for ages Later Granny changed our pond water usually Gramps job and found eggs in both the rill and the pond April Well Caroline is due to give birth to Baby Bump any day now and along with David and Jess made the most of the lovely sunny weather during the school Easter holidays That was good news for us as it meant we were allowed down into the main garden you can see Titchy Diddy and myself sleeping on the patio by the house in the photo above One particular day Caroline took advantage of a late pregnancy surge of energy to sort out the patio pots This photo shows just how happy she was to be able to do so much gardening and from the size of her bump you can imagine that she is waddling like the best of us at the moment

  • Handy Hints for Raising Ducklings
    emphasized though that it is a risky process and if you decide to help them with the external pip you must be ready to keep an eye on them after that as they may need more help due to the loss of humidity If the membrane dries out too much they can get trapped Use warm water in a sprayer to add a little moisture to the egg if you need to lift it out of the incubator once there is a hole in the shell Remember with a normal hatch there may be a few days between the internal pip and hatch so don t be too impatient Do your research ask questions and be sure you know what you are doing before trying to help them The main thing to remember is that you MUST allow the duckling to get out of the egg itself It may remain in the shell with it partly open for a day or so while it completes the absorption of the yolk Click here to follow our second hatch Ducklings should remain in the incubator for around twelve hours after hatching to dry out fully Another advantage of leaving the lid alone at this stage is that you will not be reducing the humidity and so disturbing the hatch of any other ducklings Also and this has to be seen to be believed the ducklings actually encourage and even appear to help the others with the hatch Don t panic when you see your ducklings wobbling and stumbling about in the incubator They are very awkward on their legs for quite a while Use your judgement and if you feel the ducklings could harm themselves you can put a little box within the incubator to stop them throwing themselves about too violently The Brooding Box Stage After the twelve hours in the incubator move ducklings to a brooder The brooding box pen needs a heat lamp An ordinary 100 watt bulb in a metal brooding lamp was enough for our ducklings We raised it higher as they got too hot under it and then reduced it to a 60 watt one the next week Just keep an eye on them If they move to the edge of the enclosure it may be too hot and if they huddle together tightly under the lamp they may need more heat In week three they shouldn t need heat if they are kept indoors Our second hatch only had heat until the end of week two however our solo duckling from the first hatch had it for an extra three or four days When she stopped sleeping under it I knew it was time to take it away We made the brooder from a plastic storage box The lid came in handy to act as a tray under the paint roller tray we used as a paddling pool The gold coloured candle holders were there to raise the heat lamp a bit not for decoration

  • Incubating and the Hatch
    embryos developed until they became too big to show up very well with the candling as they were filling the shells click here for information about candling and hatching Five reached the final stages but it took until day 28 when they should have been out for the cheeping to start We listened to taps and cheeps Our niece Beth happened to be staying at the time and loved it We helped them to break the shells We did this under the guidance of a Call Duck expert as a last resort Usually it is best to leave them to it We waited We waited some more The waiting was almost too much for some of us Finally we watched as Sheldon hatched The picture to the left was taken though the glass top of the incubator during her first few seconds outside the shell She spent the next twelve hours in the incubator drying out Much to our amusement she was trying to preen from the very beginning even when she couldn t stand up properly In fact she was flinging herself around the incubator trying to find her feet but banging her head in the process We popped
