    I have 3 ducks that have already hatched and they are doing wonderful, however, my two the ducklings look like they may be hatching prematurely. They are chirping loudly and are trying to get out. They are not hatching like the other ducks because these one just made one big hole. Do you think they are ready to hatch or are they premature?[​IMG]

    They both hatched and they both seem really weak but I think they should be fine. I was worried that the yolk didn't absorb yet but when they hatched they were perfectly fine. I think they were just the weakest out of them so it took longer. Thanks! :)
