Yeah, they're just imprinted on you and freak out when they can't see you. This happens sometimes when hand-raising ducklings.

I put the egg back in the incubator facing up and am trying to keep the humidity up as high as I can. It's no wonder he's not out yet, he was trying to get out toward the bottom of the incubator! Anyway, thanks so much for your help and wish me luck!  fl.gif  I will keep you updated on his progress.
