Biggie is very weak.. he has tried a few times to push out with his feet but he isn't out yet. He is sleeping..and the same is true for Trouble..He is breathing but he hasn't made any further attempts to get out since his head came out and laid on the floor of the bator.
That's OK, they need there rest, now that the humidity is down, things should speed up a little and I mean just a little. LOL
AHHH strong ducks, good. LOL.. I seen that pic and thought hummm i Wonder so instead of wondering i figured i asked. LOL
From this point on you don't need to watch them. So your OK, if in the morning they still have shell on, we need to check to make sure it's not stuck to them making it impossible for them to escape, if that is the case, just get some warm water and wet around the area that is stuck to them.
It can actually take longer it's all up to them, the faster the shrink up the stronger they will get. Just got to check on them once in a while to make sure they aren't struggling because of a dried up shell issue.
I did mention a long progress right? LOL. Don't worry get some sleep check on them in the morning make sure that shell has not stuck to there bodies. heck you may be surprise to see three ducks looking at you as if to say, UH YEH, CAN WE HELP YOU??
OK...so I took a peek and Trouble DOES still have yolk sac... it was very runny...I could tell for sure what that was..I put him in a bowl like the others were..Oh and Smiles is scooting all over the place with her shell now too.. it looks like some of that goop is wrapped around her leg. I am guess when it all dries up she can just pull her leg away from it?
Anyway.. thank you so much for taking your time to coach me through this. I cannot imagine what I would have done by myself...THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
I'm off to work, hopefully there will be some good updates when I get home. Send good vibes to all your little newbies!
