Hi I tried to hatch out some rouens and only one hatched most of the others were not even fertile and 2 quit early on. So now I have this one poor baby whom I had to help out of his shell with the help of the article from here helping the hatch! very helpful. So I got him out of the shell Thursday night He is the cutest thing. I am wondering what I can do for him since I know that ducks are social and he needs a friend. I have two male and female out in the pen about 8 months old. she just started a nest and has two eggs. not sure if she would be interested in adopting this little guy if she is going to be sitting. I also have 10 chicks hatched about a week before this guy. 1 broody who is sitting on 13 eggs which I am pretty sure should have hatched over the weekend but maybe my timing is off. and 1 silkie who is raising her 2 babies outside as well. so I have some possible adoptions not sure if any would work. I have heard that if the broodys eggs don't hatch you can switch them at night with baby chicks and she might except them. but would she except a duck? I have him in with a stuffed bear that he sleeps on and a mirror that he talks to.
