Can't seem to get any tech support. Can't seem to reset it. Alarm was very annoying while trying to figure out why it won't climb to set temps.

Today was the first time for my 6 day old ducklings to see the sun. It was 90 degrees here today so let them say "Hello Sun". They loved it. This is the second "swim" in the paint roller pan, this was a great suggestion from a BYC regular. Thanks! It was a great idea. I have 1 Pekin, 2 Cayuga, and 2 blue Swedish ducklings. I am hoping they will take up with my 2 older hens (see avatar). Pekin ducks are cool. So far the Pekin duckling seems to have more personality than the other 4. We'll see.post #8813 of 104343/14/16 at 11:18pmI have a question: how do we limit the water the baby ducks splash on the floor. I had a baby chick just hrs old die. Because I sat her with the ducks a minute. She got knocked into the water. Before I could switch everyone around in time. My partner worried about the walls and mold and the wires to dry underneath it wet. And the bookshelfs they where under. More should hopefully be born these week. And more chickens. I don't want another death.post #8814 of 104343/14/16 at 11:31pmpost #8815 of 104343/15/16 at 2:19pmQuote:Originally Posted by tracyjg

Try putting their waterer on a cookie sheet with a wire top on it. The waterer sits on the wire and as the babies splash water it goes down through the wire into the cookie sheet. I use this and it works fairly well. I don't think ANYTHING will stop the water, after all they ARE "waterfowl". Ha Ha! Good luck!post #8816 of 104343/15/16 at 10:02pmpost #8817 of 104343/16/16 at 2:54pm
I don't think you CAN be clean with ducks! I am raising my first set of ducklings, I have 2 older females already (see my avatar). They are terrible! I change their water/food/bedding twice a day. I am exhausted! Good luck!post #8818 of 104343/16/16 at 8:10pm
Okay so I'm incubating some pekin eggs for the first time and one began internally peeping this morning but still hasn't cracked through its shell. Should I be worried?
