    I have two hatched mallard ducklings that are having a great difficulty standing and I fear their feet might be curved inwards too. What can I do to help them? Here is a picture. [​IMG]

    It has been almost 24 hours since hatch. They are trying very hard to stand. Can I take them out to put them on a less slippery surface? I have other eggs in incubator hatching as well
