    One of my ducklings popped out of the shell with some of his yolk sticking out. It bled a little but I pressed a damp washcloth to it when I noticed the blood.

    Is he going to be ok?

    What do I do?

    it should absorb the rest on its own in the bator. If it starts bleeding really bad you can dab some flour or corn starch on it where it is bleeding.

    I don't really know much about ducklings, but I would keep my eye on it if was one of my chicks! Good Luck!
