They wouldn't move. Usually when I clean the duck coop, my pair of Muscovy ducks moves from the coop to the big dog cage without too much trouble. But this time they just wouldn't leave.

We're on Day Eight today. On Day Ten I'll candle them again to monitor the air pocket size, and begin misting and cooling the eggs daily.
I'm hopeful that we might have a few ducklings hatch this time. They're sure cute when they're little.
My hope is to inspire you, and to encourage your homesteading plans and your dreams of a simple, self-reliant, God-dependent life. You can follow me at:
