    Missing fluff

    Hello! One of my ducklings is looking a little odd. They are all 8 days old. Her fluff looks a little strange, the fluff is a little more seperated. I think this could be so to some bigger feathers coming in. She also has a spot missing fluff on one side of her neck. It’s doesn’t look overly...

    day 30 and ducks still didn’t hatch!

    Hi, i’m a first time hatcher. I’ve recently started incubating duck eggs and only one hatched in day 28. I have 5 eggs in all. Another one looks like the hard shell chipped off already but the thin part wasn’t broken through. Should I help it?

    Can I use tap water and hose water for my ducks?

    I have some ducks hatching soon and I would like to know if I can use tap and hose water for my ducks. While they’re small I would like to let them swim in the bath tub/sink. When they get older the plan is to get them a kiddie pool and fill it up with water. This is my first time hatching...

    Dark campbell ducklings?

    So I got this pair of suppose khaki campbell ducklings from a listing on craigslist a few weeks ago. Now these ducklings are starting to grow feathers and they look much more like dark Campbell feathers than khaki. Is it possible that this person accidentally gave me this rare breed?

    Internal pip?

    Does this count as an internal pip? Should I start lockdown now? I wanted to post a video of the duck that can be seen wriggling inside the egg but I can only show pictures. You can see the little bump is the beak. I think maybe it hasn’t broken through yet.
