All I can remember is that it was the beginning it was around middle of the first week of September when I brought him home and I did everything I read online about caring for a duck egg to then one day candle him and see his little heart beat fluttering in the shell. For which I took pics of. So September 11/12 he was day 6-8 had I known or thought to keep track I would have a better idea. Either way, the help I received just in the past day and been tremendously helpful and spot on! And I’m so very grateful for it!
