    I have an incubator and have hatched chickens out in the past. I just got some Pekin eggs off of another BYCer and ducks and chickies are set to hatch about the same day. (Put the ducks in the bator a week before chickens.)

    What should I expect?

    When can they get their first little bath?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Start researching. What you need to know would take more than a post or 2. I suggest getting a copy of Storey's Guide to Raising Ducks as soon as possible and start reading.
