    I pull the eggs when they first started to crack and had a bin step up in our kitchen with a heat lap and damp towels. We don't have incubator, I would have too many ducks and chickens then. I will try to get new pics this week-end.

    Watering ducks in winter

    You can get a outdoor dog water bowl that has a heating unit undernieth it. I used one last year and only on the coldest days did it freeze over a little.

    I did do a search on Bumble foot. Found nothing

    My peking has one or two large bumps on her foot. They are not bleeding. None of our vets in the area are waterfowl trained. How do you treat bumble foot at home?
