My eggs are due to hatch but this little gal hatched Wednesday before lockdown even started! Her membrane had issues and she had a really hard time hatching. The other two eggs that tried hatching when she did but they didn't make it. She doesn't seem like she was ready to hatch. She's finally getting to where she can walk a bit but one leg is so splayed she has a hard time. She's gotten stronger and stronger though- I thought she was a goner at first. But she is all alone- how hard will it be on her to be by herself? I have other ducklings but some are almost a month old and the tigers are 6 weeks so they'll catch up with my adult flock long before she's ready to go with them. Any ideas? She's already much more "people friendly" than any other duckling I've had. Is she doomed to be a pet duck or will she survivor being alone and one day be able to successfully integrate with the flock?
