    My ducklings should be comming out to night or tomorrow. Should I keep the lights on in the room to stimulate the ducklings comming out?

    Thank you

    The coop
    I dont think it really matters! Because of the light from the bator they will be ok. I dont think it will make a difference!

    Ok, thank you. But there is no light in my incubator. It works, but there is no light in this kind of incubator.

    I don't think it matters either. The darkness might make them feel more secure, or it might make them want to wait until morning to hatch! Good luck!
