    Hi! I'm new to hatching ducklings...I've read a few articles and I think I have the basics down...but I had one hatch at 17 days. is that normal? is it going to be okay?

    thanks :)

    That would be extremely early, what breed? Were these your own eggs or eggs shipped to you? Any chance that a broody was sitting on it before you took it or is it warm enough where you are that the heat may have started it developing?

    It's mixed with a mallard and I don't know what else. I gather the eggs everyday. I put this one in there on Feb 28th and it hatched before any of the first batch that I put in the 25th..[​IMG]
