    Hi, I'm new here but i always come here for advice.
    I have brand new ducklings. They started hatching on valentine's day. Today I noticed that momma duck keeps biting one of them when he gets close to her. I was wondering if anyone knew why and any ideas on what I should do?

    Some ducks are not good mothers. You may need to put him and his siblings into a brooder.
