Well this is only my second 'natural' incubation experience with poultry. My African goose hatched out a duck egg today. Duckling is drying nicely and should be fully fluffed out by tomorrow. (It was a bit of a 'sticky chick', so I did gently 'brush' the feathers with a soft toothbrush a bit ago). The geese are in the same run as the ducks and chickens, and the goose is in the chicken coop. Since I really don't want a baby duckling slaughter, should I move mom and baby to the neighboring run tomorrow? Just trying to avoid tragedy here....
