Evening! I come to this group tonight in search of some help with an egg I have here that is hatching. My duck who lives outside in a coop and outdoors at her leisure during the day, but at night i bring her into the coop for protection from predators, has been nesting the last month. 4 days ago her ducklings started to arrive. I thought they were all done arriving and I started clearing out the others that she hadn't sat on for over a day , she even pushed them all around and out of the nest..... one of them has a little beak poking out that is chirping still. Its mucus membrane is very dry and its trying desperately to hatch. I tried giving it back to her and she pecked it!! I brought it indoors, and have it in a blanket, under a heat lamp. 1) Is there anything I can do to help this little duckling hatch and live a healthy life? I haven't gone through something like this before and have gone through 3 duck hatchings over the last 2 years, although this was the first set of ducklings for this mama duck. 2) I've been researching online that it might help to give the mucus membrane some water, i have gotten a warm cloth and wipped the egg down with it. 3) Any helpful advice is appreciated. Thank you.
