    Good morning my duck is a Peking she has been sitting on 11 eggs. We have one duck hatch this morning I'm wondering what I can do to help I would like for the ducks to also imprint on me but I don't want to disrupt the hatching process. It's also chilly this morning should I take them into heat them up under and warm light

    Congrats on your new ducklings! Don't worry your duck will keep the ducklings nice warm, but don't intervine until the hatch has finished and the ducklings have dried up. Pekins are friendly ducks and are easy to tame so all you need is time, patientence and a few treats!

    Let mama do her thing. To interfere now might make her leave the eggs.
