    We just hatched ducklings..they hatched yesterday and today. It took one about 48 hours to hatch. He was the first to pip but stayed in the same spot for 2 days while the others hatched around him. He hatched sometime last night or early this morning. I just removed his siblings from the incubator as they are all fluffy and very active. He is less active and not fully dry so I left him in the Bator with one pipped egg. He seems weaker and I am worried that being alone in Bator could stress him out overnight. Should I put him in the brooder with his siblings?
