      Sorry to bother you, but we helped hatch a duckling 11 hrs ago. Its out of shell, but the yolk is still on it and about half inch big. What do I do?

        She's doing fine (a lot of peeping). The yolk hasn't soaked in yet. What we're doing is, rapping her up in a rag towel, (putting in the incubator) giving her water with electrolytes in it, and making sure that the temp is at 97.5 and the moisture 70 or 75%. do you have any other solutions?

        No, sounds like you are doing what I would do. Make sure the towel stays moist so it doesn't stick tot he yolk and pull it out. You can also post in the Incubating and Hatching Eggs forum for more help! :) Good luck with your duckling!

      I had an incubation with my chicken eggs fail for the most part but my brooding duck hatched and is hatching right now 18 duck eggs and one buff chick. any ideas on how to safe guard for when the power goes out?

        I would just make sure they are out of a draft and well sheltered. Mama duck will take great care of them all!

      I bought chicks & 3 ducks weeks ago. 1 duck has failed to thrive, 1/2 the size
      others, can not seem to get all the way up on its legs. tremors like parkinsons, the chicks have picked at its back , its has lost down ,t maybe its just cold. put heat lamp on its box, now its plenty warm but still shaking. any suggestions? I 've added probiotics to its water .

      Wanted to let you know the apron arrived and I just love it. I am not a good cook and I hate housework but, the apron is so cheerful I forget all that.

      The only minor change - I wish it had ties at the neck, it comes down too far in front-and "down the front," is where all my spills end up. Maybe you could also make some "cheerful" adult size bibs - I would take to restaurants with m

        Wow, that was fast! I am glad you love it!
        Good idea on the neck ties. I will see if I can do that on custom orders! I had been toying with the idea of adult bibs. Thank you for the reminder!
