    Hello!! This may sound like a silly question, but I have 5 pekin duck eggs that are about to hatch, and am worried i won’t be able to tell them apart. Does anybody know where I can get outfits for baby ducks?? Lol.

    I know you can get little, rubber multi-colored ankle bands for chickens.

    hey!! my duck eggs should be hatching tomorrow, and i’ve noticed one has started to hatch, has a hole about the size of a pea, but for the past 3 hours. i hear it peeping a lot inside the egg, but when will it come out? is it healthy? thank you!!

    Don't touch it and it can take up to 24 hours before it hatches. They take a long time from pip to zip. During that time they are absorbing the yolk and the blood supply in the egg dries up..Then they hatch..
