Sitting with a cup of coffee. (coffee lovers) - Page 1761
It's original but I haven't researched if it's a first edition. There's nothing on the cover page about that except stating that it was sold by subscription only.
Wow!!! you sure got your exercise in before you even had your second cup!!!!
Never tried one of the K-cup machines. Mostly because it would take 3 of those things to just fill my favorite stoneware mug!!!
Go with the iodine or use vetericyn spray. You can also use triple antibiotic ointment.
Try to keep them away from the other chicks--if possible set them in a cup for a day. I know they are ducks and will likely jump out. The yolk should absorb in a day. If it was green and bigger then it would be bad. Now it looks fairly normal for chicks that did not completely develop during incubation.
For the next hatch, get a brinsea spot check and adjust the temp on the incubator. Yours was likely a bit too low during incubation.
Thanks for the picture. Sometimes the sack hangs off with a bit of umbilicus and that is a different treatment.

Great news thank you! Believe it or not it was a mama duck doing all the work no incubator! So not sure what humidity level was its been pretty dry here in the south so maybe that's what it was? We are very new to this and were thrilled when mama went broody and up until she started picking apart the eggs we thought she was doing a great job! Lol I've been putting ointment on every time I notice it seems a little dry and I check on them every 15 minutes someone said keep it damp do I need to place wet paper towels over it or should the ointment do the trick?
Use the ointment--I do not think you need paper towels.
The thing to worry about is infection.
Keep us posted!
