    Ive got another week before my duck hopefully hatches. What do I need to transfer it to and when to keep warm. I read the duckling needs to stay in incubator for 24 hours but its such a small incubator. Also I have cats so was hoping to figure out a warm place to keep the duck. Would maybe a large clear storage box with lid work? I would cut a whole in it for warming light and of course fresh air. Bedding would be blanket? Or is there someplace I can buy a nice lidded warming box all ready to go for the baby for next 2 weeks or so.
