Hi everyone! I've just hatched my first duckling (Nelson) from store bought Braddock White eggs and I have 6 runner duck eggs in the incubator. What started as a lockdown experiment with my toddler has resulted in a new family member and a bit of a duck obsession! Nelson is now two weeks old, getting huge and a lot of attention while we build a duck run and wait for the next ducklings to hatch. I was completely unprepared by how quickly we would all get attached to Nelson and having no previous experience with ducks I have panicked over everything and worried about all the things that could go wrong since the moment we set the eggs in the incubator. However, after stumbling across this site I have had constant reassurance and advice and every question I have had has been answered. The picture shows Nelson at about a week old.
