So... I came home tonight to four ducklings!! I have two pekins and two rouen x pekins. I'm waiting on the last egg still. Wednesday at noon is the official hatch date, so once again, my babies are early! I'll get some pictures tomorrow. Also, two of them have their feathers stuck together. What should I do about that?

The ones with their feathers stuck together are probably just the newest ones, I wouldn't worry about it. If they are still like that when you move them to the brooder, you can take a damp cloth and wipe the gook off them, or a soft brush (like a baby hair brush, a toothbrush, or an eyebrow brush) and 'fluff' them that way. If you use the damp cloth, make sure you dry them off real good, and are in a warm room so they don't get chilled. Congrats on the duckies!
