First time incubating babby ducks!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi! smile.png This is my first time hatching, well, anything and we're on about the 4-6 day mark and all six eggs that we recieved by post seem to be doing well! The only problem that we've got is that two have "detatched membranes"(?) and we're still going to keep going with them but a dark spot has appeared in the air sacs that are mis-shaped and I was just wondering if anyone else has had any experience with this and has any tips on what I should do?

You may want to check in on the hatching forum.  We also have hatchers here - there's a Call Ducks Finally Hatched thread, and hatchers post there sometimes.

 

There's also a sticky on hatching - link in blue letters at the top of the Duck Forum index.

I'm keeping mine at about 55% smile.png Everywhere that I've looked has said that's the best level to work at. Though it's best to keep an eye on the air cell to make sure you're not adding too much or too little smile.png This is all from what I've heard from other people though.
