Thanks! I never noticed this with ducklings or chicken chicks, but perhaps that because I didn't pay attention to them like I do with the peafowl eggs. I have some pictures which I'll post, and if you could comment on them I reall would appreciate it!
No problem. The first time I hatched ducklings I had 3 malpositions and I did everything "by the book". Luckily 2 managed to hatch by themselves, but I had to assist the 3rd one. Are yours needing assisting?
