    One duck hatched out yesterday, today the other 3 hatched out. What do I do next? The one duck keeps going into the water bowl to try and swim, Should he be allowed to do this? I gave them some chicken starter with medicine, should they be eating that? When should I move them out of the incubator? Will they be OK with baby chickens?

    Take the medicated feed away right now! It will hurt them and no they shouldn't lbe allowed to swim unless supervised
