    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about ducks (although I've had a few), but in addition to the link that BantamFan4Life left with you, you might also want to post on our Duck section in Other Backyard Poultry under the Forum at the top of the page and take advantage of our duck experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your hatch.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! If you still see movement that's a good sign and hopefully the duckling has got into position to hatch. You might also like to pop by the duck section, here is the link ~https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks

    Good luck with your ducklings and hatch :fl
    Enjoy BYC :frow

    Welcome to BYC and the coop! There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to joined the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around BYC. Good luck with your hatch. I've never incubated eggs before. So I'm no help there.

    Sorry but I know nothing about birthing ducks. The others have given you good threads. Sending good hatching vibes your way [​IMG].
