    Broody Rock Dove Sitting on Serama Eggs

    My rescue rock dove, Squabble, is sitting on two serama eggs from Dolly and Jeremy, and there's already development in one of the eggs!

    Hurt duckling in incubator

    There is a hurt duckling that hatched in the incubator. I read something that said you are supposed to keep a duckling in the incubator for 12-24 hrs. Do I keep it in there or take it out and help it?

    Are these eggs worth incubating?

    I'm going to be hatching my own eggs in the next two days, however there are a few I'm unsure if I should even try putting in the incubator. Just as a note, I have incubated before but that was four years ago, so I'm still pretty new at it. I don't have pictures but will explain the best I...
