Guest blogger Grace is blogging about her attempt to hatch four duck eggs as her 4-H project.
On Sunday we put the 4 eggs in the incubator.
The eggs will take 28 days to hatch into ducks. I have to turn the eggs at least 3 times a day. My mom made me a duck egg turning chart. I put what time I turn them on diferant days. It doesn't matter when I turn my duck eggs. It does matter that I turn them at least 3 times a day.
The temperature is suppose to be between 99 and 100 degrees F. If the eggs are cooler or hotter than that they won't hatch. I think it will be hard to hatch the eggs. I am glad I am not a mother duck so I don't have to sit on them!
After four kids, ten moves and nearly two decades, we are still blissfully in love (most of the time) and I found myself back in the state I was born and raised in. It has definitely been a journey. In fact, on our 18th anniversary we pulled the last of our stuff up over the pass and into Montana, leaving our surprise love, Idaho, behind. But Montana is a great place. The last best place according to some. And we fully intend to explore as much of it as we can! Join us on our continued adventure through life, love and other stuff that comes with it.
