So he's doing great. He sti has his little head in the egg but he's breathing and not fusing much. And he's chirping again so I think he's gonna be ok! I have the humidity up to 80 and he's still wrapped in the paper towel. He looks ok to me! @pyxis
Woo! e Sounds like it's pulling through.
Is there a way to pull his head out? He's starting to fuss again and he's got this yellow liquid around his face.Almost like a jelly. I don't want to damage anything but he's swallowing some of the liquid. I don't know if that's normal or not @Pyxis
Yes - but be careful. It sounds like he might aspirate if you don't do it so I'd say go ahead and do it, then put him in the bag. Grab him gently by the beak slide his head up and out. Make sure you work with the direction his neck is twisted and not against it - you don't want to hurt his little neck. It won't hurt him. Just be careful not to tear any membranes and have a dry paper towel close so you can put pressure on any bleeds if you accidentally cause one to stop the bleeding.
Ok. I will try that now. Thank you! I'll tell you how it goes
I will be leaving work in a couple minutes and won't have internet access again until tomorrow afternoon, so let me know how he is progressing and I'll try to check in sooner if I can!
@rocki769 hows the lil duckling this morning? and there is @Lacrystol who is experienced with this sort of problem too if you need help.
@Pyxis the duckling is doing great! I was so afraid he wasn't gonna make it through the night but he looks great today. It kinda looks like he's absorbed most of the yolk. I have him wrapped in a wet cloth in the incubator. I'm gonna put him in the ziplock bag before I leave to go to school because I don't want him to be a little turd when I'm not home. But I think he's gonna make it! He's chirping and he's bright eyed. He's breathing ok.
Thank you for all of your help. I will keep you updated on his progress as time goes. If I have another issue with him ill be sure to write to you!!
Yay! I'm so glad! Be sure to post a picture of him once he's out
