I've recently successfully hatched 7 ducklings in my home made incubator, from my duck eggs that belonged to my four ducks that were killed last month by a fox. Five of them hatched perfectly, are about 3-4 days old, and are the cutest wildest things in the world. The sixth one hatched on his own, however it was noticeable after a few hours of him being in the incubator, that he was not functioning right. After he was dry he was on his back paddling away a lot. The seventh was an assisted hatch, I pulled back a good portion of the egg shell, however he pushed himself out of the egg when he was ready. Both are showing the same signs of motor incoordination, Unable to stand, walk, and mostly lays on their side. I have them in a box with narrow walls I made so they can lean against them, and push themselves from their back onto their stomach. They have shown slight improvement over the past few days, slight. I'm hoping through the rehab I'm putting them through that in a few weeks they will be-able to at least walk. I'll love them all the same. Just wondering if there is anything more I can do. They are about 2-3 days old, there is no exposed brain, they are completely furry on their head. And they don't seem to have any cuts or broken bones. Healthy looking aside from the fact that they can't stand up without assistance. Two of their parents were blue/black swedish ducks, and the other two were a crested mix, one looked like a mallard but wasn't due to not being able to fly (I'm assuming an inbreed), the other was a white looking inbreed swedish. Two of the five normal ducklings are crested and doing fine. However both of the motor incoordinated ducklings are crested. I've read in this article Here, that it's not unusual for crested ducks to have coordination problems. (Be prepared for dry reading) Anyone of experience with crested ducklings, or have seen this before, I'd appreciate any input anyone may have. Thank you in advanced! PS I may upload a video to youtube of them if it would help.
