    I have read they do absorb the yolks. Have you read the Sticky about hatching waterfowl? It looks very helpful. I have yet to do any hatching, but I suggest people read that, and check in at the Thread Formerly Known as Hatch Day Is Today.

    Welcome, little! I think they can go a day, not sure how much longer than that.

    Blessings on all of you!
