What happens if a duck incubator gets knocked over a little bit?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello! I'm Reagan and its my first time incubating ducks! Im very new to this cite and I have a few questions, they can wait though.

 

I was laying down when my dog made a huge racket, I turn to see that my incubator is a little farther from where it used to be. Turned out my dog jumped down from her bed and hit it! An egg fell over and the rest were fine, no cracks in the egg but I'm worried for the little duckling inside! Will any deformities form or will it be troubled? I hope not! One of them was hatching when it got pushed and it rolled over, but I turned it back over. Same question for that little duckling, deformities? It is almost the 24th day of the cycle, hope I didn't slow or fasten things down! Answers asap please!:jumpy:hit

Things shouldn't be changed timeline-wise unless the eggs cooled down a lot. (I.e. They were out of the 'bator for a few hours.) Though they may need a little extra time to reorient.

You said one was hatching? Day 24 is a bit early for that.

Deformities seem unlikely, though I suppose injury is possible. With the shell intact I wouldn't worry too much about it.
