    So my ducklings have hatched on 2.11.18, and they might've gotten a little bit of assistance i just cracked the outer shell and avoided touching the membrane. 2 days have passed they've been sleepy the past 2 days and they're all dried up but not walking or anything. Just sleeping... Is it normal for them to be like this, I've read the forums and they're up and ready within 10-24 hours after they hatched... This is my first time hatching, so I'm really desperate right now.
