    The ling with the fluid died in she'll overnight. It had a huge yolk unabsorbed.

    Thanks to all on BYC for all the help and advice

    Feed does affect egg shells, hopefully someone with better nutritional education can help you there. It seems like I see a lot of duck hatchers have the same concerns with the ducklings having problems getting out.

    That's great on the hatchers. Sorry you lost the one.
