When I was little I had a friend who found a duck egg she thought was abandoned. She took it home and put a towel around it and placed it on a heating pad. She rotated it and kept it very warm and eventually it hatched. She didn't know how to feed it so I ratted her out to her mom who bought some feed for it and eventually found the duckling a new home. My friend got in big trouble. My question is can use use a heating pad instead of a heat lamp?
