    Coconut oil works stuck pieces of membrane off, but if it’s goo from fluid in the egg, just a water-dampened cotton ball will usually help. I also rub with a dry towel or a soft bristle toothbrush.

    It is a glob that is glued the wing to her body. Feel so bad for her. She’s the only one who had this type of drying of the membrane.

    Took your advice and am doing small bits of it with either coconut oil or a warm sponge. Tiny bits have loosened.

    Here is a picture of tiny duckling 3 and 6. They are all dry but not found their feet yet, so I dribbled a drizzle of nutra-drench along the bill. The glob duckling Judy got its wing free, I will get a picture of her when I get the glob off.

    I am so surprised by how tiny they are. I remember my welsh being much bigger when they hatched.

    Ducklings first bath time. Was cute. It took them falling over in the water to figure out how fun it could be.

    They are currently hiding in my hair as if it is mommy duck feathers. Itis pretty precious.
