    Hope y'all can see this. Had a duck hatch under an OEG hen. Im not sure if it's premature or if it has been pecked by it's surrogate mama. It's not standing, but will drink electrolyte water when held.

    Do you think it's hear just hasn't closed yet?

    Are any of the parent ducks carrier of the crested gene?
