Ducklings update!

The duck eggs have been warming in the incubator for eight days now and today we were able to take a peek inside of the developing embryo. This is called ‘Candling’ – Shining a bright light source behind the egg to show details through the shell.

A positive find! We could see that the eggs were progressing by the veins spreading and growing inside the shell and the start of the air cell at one end of the egg. We will continue to follow and share their progress throughout the coming days!
