    With my chicks it stayed on the chick and dried up but the other chicks pulled it out and he showed no signs of pain after so maybe u can snip it off with scissors or slowly pull it off but other than that I am not exactly sure

    That's good :D I'm currently incubating some eggs,runner, runner / blue Swedish and Welsh Harlequin/ khaki Campbell. It's such a hard time just twiddling my thumbs hoping they'll hatch!

    I'm going to try to record when each one hatchs, but the ducks are on there own time :D I might even take pictures every day and make a thread about It. Best of luck with the ducklings :thumbsup
