Duckling helping it's siblings hatch

Thought I would share, do ducks usually do this? Our first hatch so we found it adorable. www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-KgsW7EbLs

I haven't seen any of mine really do that before. That said 99% of the time as soon as they hatch mine try to fall asleep using other eggs as pillows, so it's not line anyone is really active enough to be "helping" the others.

It is so cute when they use them as pillows, not so much when they think the are bowling pins though.

I did not watch the video so I am not sure what you are asking but our ducklings will groom each other. They are so social and bonded with each other, unlike chicks that will peck each other. I love the way they snuggle together in a pile with their heads on each other. When I sell ducklings I have a 4 minimum because they look out for each other and take care of each other in such a loving way.
