    Okay so out of seven of the ducks i incubated, only 3 made it, which isn't so good. But anyways, one duckling i had to pretty much hatch without its help. Its doing fine now, but isn't as noisy as the other two, and when it does peep it sounds like theres mucus caught. What should i do to help clear it up?
