Fully understandable... and glad to help... thanks to Amiga for tagging...

Sometimes the little buggers get in too much of a hurry is all... do you still have more to hatch?

No more needed to hatch. The duckling looks ok, can lift its head and move, just can't stand up on its feet yet. About how long should it tak for it to dry completely and stand up?

Could take a full day... don't rush it... it will take a bit longer than normal since it really wasn't quite ready yet...

So glad to hear that! And you are very welcome, just happy to help... might want to go ahead and put a tiny dab of antibiotic ointment (without painreliever) on the spot just to ward of any infection possibilities... keep checking it til it heals up fully, but should be good now... smile.png
