Today is Day 26 for my Khaki Campbell's eggs, and she's been sitting, Old Fashioned Style. This evening I went out to do the pm feeding, and I found a half hatched very bloody egg with a very alive duckling approximately 18" from the nest. So I held the egg for awhile, and I did pick just a few tiny pieces of shell, leaving the inner membrane intact. (I was thinking that I would put that baby under the light, because it seemed like mom must've rejected it). Then I thought, oh no, what am I doing?! So I put the egg back in the nest, and it looked like mom set back down. What do y'all think of this?
