    ok my silkie has been sitting on duck eggs. One of the eggs was about 1/2 hatched and the 3 week old chicks got it and pecked it. They pulled the little feathers off one wing and pecked a hole on one side of it's beak all the way thru the end of it. The question is do I need to do any thing or will it heal on it's own. Every thing is closed for the night so getting anything at the feed store is out until tomorrow. The baby duck seems to be fine. I brought it and the other hatching duck in. Their are acting the same so I hope this is a good sign.

    Thanks for any help

    I think that it should be fine. You'll just have to observe its' behavior.
