    Had an Indian Runner duck to hatch this morning. I thought it looked strange but when it dried some I noticed that the little bit of junk left over was more than that...it looks like its intestines are pulled out. Dont know what to do. Any advice?

    Leave it be. It will dry up and fall off. Also don't let other birds pick at it either.

    If what you are seeing is intestines, there's nothing you can really do. The duckling will die. It could be a "rough navel" or some of the yolk that didn't get absorbed, in which case, just keep the duckling away from others and clean for a few days and it should go away on its own.
