I candled a few Duck Eggs at random today. The shaded patch is now around 75% of the egg.
The eggs are so dark now that you can't see much of anything inside of them anymore.
The total weight is 2lb 3.4oz, the target weight is 2lb 2.78oz. So they are now +0.62oz above the target weight. It's not a problem yet but I might start thinking of how I can reduce the humidity a bit.
Farm Tip: Listen to the old timers' advice. They are usually right.
I will be back in another three days with a weight update and a candle photo or two.
Make sure to check out the live feed, we currently have a "Puppy Cam" with six, 12 day old PUPPIES! Their eyes are starting to open now and they are much more active, for about 60 seconds at a time, between feeding and sleeping.
