I know he is throwing me for a loop to! What about the malformed duckling have you ever seen that before? He had no eyes and his brain was never closed off poor thing he lived for 4 minutes out of the shell. He was a real fighter. So sad.
Hello all and good morning! I hatched out two pure Indian runner duckling yesterday and was curious of two things one can anyone identify breed? I’m sure one is Emory penciled not sure about the other. Anyone care to guess? Also worst hatch I have ever had only two survived of nine one severely...
Thank you so much it’s not bleeding to bad just a bit I don’t think he is ready to come out though so I will watch him I just feel so bad I never handle them but the early ones where trampling them so I made a quick switch and dropped him 😳 poor thing
Ok I will do that then I just checked and he is still moving only a little blood he dropped pretty hard though it was a loud crack when I dropped him there was only a tiny hole and I cracked it that bad.
Please help what do I do I dropped a hatching egg pretty hard I was moving them to another incubator they are due today should I leave him alone or get him out fast. I do have experience hatching eggs and have had to assist many only lost 2. I’ll attach a pic this just happened 5 min ago please...
Thank you I will do right now! The ones in the incubator are not looking good all had saddle bags and like a bubble in them? Maybe better off with live chicks. I have hatched my own duck eggs all spring with these so I know it’s the eggs. Thanks!
This is my silver Appleyard duck Donald and although she had a vet visit one morning and awake to an egg in her crate she is still known as Donald 😂 she is as sweet as peach pie and comes when called if your holding her favorite treat which is canned peas and corn. She is 3 years old. 😊
Awh 😢 have you tried putting there legs comfortably up to there bodies like they should be and gently placing them in a sock? And then place the sock inside a cup to keep them upright. It worked for my duckling that had sprawled legs. You can look up how to do it on YouTube. Hope they get better!
