    I had to pull the ducks eggs today because she was smoshing them while they are hatching. One baby is about half way out right now but I moved the rest inside and set up a heat light to hang over them. I remember my dad doing this when i was little but has anyone else done it recently so I can get some pointers?

    I've got them in a bowl with 2 thermometers because i can't regulate the heat with the light. They're Muscovy eggs so I've been misting them fairly often, mostly when the half-hatched one looks dry.
