Ok, so yesterday my first duckling hatched out. I have another 13 to hatch out hopefully today. Now my question is this... I have moved the chick into a brooder and shown it the water by dipping its bill, however, how long till the chick figures out that food is food? I have tried dipping its bill in the starter, but it just ignores it. The chick is alone right now, but I have tossed in a couple of small washcloths for it to cuddle up with. Currently the peeping is relentless, unless the chick is being held. Hope the others hatch out soon to give this little guy "Backwards" company... I was going to have him in the brooder with the 2 week old chickens, but I think they would pick/peck on him. Not really sure what gender this little one is, but I think it may be female (if I did the vent sexing right. Well, now I am off to work leaving this little guy alone.. Here is a pic.
