Earlier this month I became the care-taker of 10 mallard eggs (their nest destroyed by construction). My husband, kids and I have been getting lots of info on the net and have made a homemade incubator & kept the eggs warm and turned. They are very close to hatching - all the ducklings have "pipped" internally and we can hear them tapping on the shells. I would love any advice on getting these little guys through their first few days. I can get a rehabber to take them "if they survive" but they don't want them too young because they aren't set up for the really young ones. I can also take them to a children's farm nearby once they are older as well.
I'll be waiting to hear!!
