We have our first icubated call duck out of the shell quite exciting for us but my son wanted me to post and ask a question He noticed that the babies feet are quite dry while feathers are still wet is there any special care they need for the first few hours ? With chickens we have just left them in the bator until all dry.

I don't think your to move them till dry. Hopefully someone who hatches in a bator can chime in but I think it should probably just be left alone for now. Congrats!! and
