I posted this in the April HAL, I apologize to those that are seeing it 2 times. I thought it may be helpful info for those not reading that thread though. I have 4 wonderful Ancona ducklings. They seem to love each other and really take care of each other (very different than chicks for sure!). They snuggle up together and comfort each other it seems. I did have a cord wrapped around on of the chicks. You can clearly see were it was wrapped around her even 2 days later. Cord Wrapped Around Chick Info (maybe you need this someday) - I had one duckling born with the cord wrapped around i tightly. The cord held one wing down and she couldn't really balance. When the egg was completely detached from her and she was mostly dry I sterilized some first aid scissors, quickly grabbed the chick, clipped the cord (not removing or pulling it, just cutting it and kinda taking it off the skin) and put the chick back in in incubator. This chick still has a mark across its body with no feathers and a slight indention when the cord was. Her naval seems to be healing great too! You can tell which one she is because her feathers are kinda missing in a strip on the left side of her body. All seems fine with her at this point though. The cord baby is the one in the front. You can see the "stripe" of no feathers going down her body. Cord baby on the left This duckling is snuggling up to the little cord wrapped baby in the incubator. The other ducks tried to get her cleaned up too it seems. They weren't being aggressive at all.
