Okay guys... I've had a duckling hatch, and instead of fluffing up like the others when its dried, the goo has caked everything together and gone hard. Is there away to safely clean this gunk off? Will it come off on its own?
My main worry was its eyes were almost glued shut by it, I managed to wipe enough off to get him comfortably moving. Would have been temp it wouldn't stablise after the ducklings were out, playing with the thermometer. Will zip tie it up next timeIt sounds like it was a wet hatch (your temps may be low or your humidity too high). You can clean it or just leave it be and it will fluff on its own.
