    duck is moving around but is stuck to egg so he cant stand up.. Do I encourage it to dry up or keep it wet? Help!

    I don't know much about ducks but I wouldn't dry everything up just yet. Hopefully someone will answer soon.

    Thank you..The yolk sac has gotten bigger in the last little while. Seems like the more he chirps the more it comes out :(
