How long can I keep a baby duck in the incubator?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

one of my ducklings hatched today. I have another pip, but no action from any other egg yet.
I don't want to open the incubator until I absolutely have to to retrieve the hatched baby.
How long can it stay in the incubator (with no food or water)?

They ingest there yoke sacks for 3 days, but after that you need to take it out. If you have to, (this is the worts case scenario) Raise the Humidity as High as you can, turn up the house thermostat, pull it out has fast as you can, then put sponges in.
