Signs Of Life !

After a couple of days in the incubator I again candled the swamped ducks eggs. At least 4 of  the 14 were showing signs of life. They are in the final stages of development, so it is difficult to see exactly what's going on by candling. 

These eggs will have been submerged 2 or 3 times in icy water for a couple of hours at a time, and I will be astonished if they all survive. However I should know within a few days how many we saved in the nick of time.

Meanwhile I will prepare the brooding box with a photo of their Mum, since I am still unable to catch her.
