The ducklings are exhausted. Hatching is hard work!
Duckling Number 3 Begins to Hatch!
Duckling number 3 has hatched and number 4 is on its way.
Duckling one and two are drying under the heat lamp.
Duckling number 3 joins the group. Usually you would leave the ducklings in the incubator until fully dry. However in our case the incubator was equipped with an automatic egg turner and the ducklings were getting themselves into trouble by crawling up on top of the other eggs getting stuck between the moving egg turner and moving too close to the hot heating element and motor.
A Ducklings First Drink
Marbles are placed in the poultry water feeder so the newly hatched ducklings do not drown.
