    After My first duck egg hatch i saw this it came out when my duck kick out of the shell it was not attached to him its my first time so what is it? is it bad? that he did not absorb that? when should i feed water and food?
    should i feed it starter mash? when can i take it out of the incubator what should the degrees be?

    he pooped! i have had chicks like that. Right before they hatch some have that, i think its just poo. i never had a problem as long as they look healthy

    Congratulations on the hatch!

    That is strange looking! I wonder if you add a couple of words to your topic, like Just Hatched - Many Questions, and the people who know about hatching babies (I bought mine as day olds) might find your post more easily.
