    My Muscovy is sitting on well was sitting on 7 eggs 2 have hatched 1 is pipping now and the others nothing yet. My question is the first duckling hatched night before last Tues night, the 2 nd one sometime Wed. morn mama is sitting tight and I am wondering if i should take the 2 that have hatched and see if they want water. It's has been so long since we let mama have ducklings that I can't remember how long they can go without food and water. Last year we only had the one duckling and because mama wanted to kill him he was in the house from hatch. But i am concerned about these 2 that have hatched. Please give me advise so i can relax a little. Thanks [​IMG]
