I accidentally hatched a duck egg. I have no idea what to do. Just that I can not put it in the brooder with my chicks. Before you ask how I “accidentally” hatched a duck. My cousin was giving my family duck eggs because her ducks are laying everyday. And I wasn’t made aware of that until just two weeks ago, not knowing we were getting them much earlier than that. Most times when I tend my flock and get the eggs I place the eggs on the counter on a towel and at that time I got a wild hair up my butt and decided to incubate eggs. Last week when the chicks hatched, there was one left and I thought “Oh, must have died, poor thing.” I picked it up and candled it and it moved. So I was like. “Okay, late starter, back you go.” Well, it was a duckling. Imagine my shock.
