The ducklings have started hatching!! So excitement all round here but there seems to be a strange smell in the duck house and I wonder if that is from the hatchings eggs..?

I haven't been able to see how many there are yet as the girls are being very protective but I saw a tiny yellow head this morning and there is a lot of chirping!

Just wondered how long do all the hatchings take and if I need to do anything like check the nest for rotten unhatched eggs?

I have put new bedding down, put out chick starter and a small but deep water tub for the girls and a little shallow one for the ducklings so it's a lovely little house at the moment..

I am also worried about the very hot weather that we are expecting over the next week.. will the ducklings be ok?

Sorry for all the questions.. just want to get everything right!

Will try to get some photos posted soon once they start coming out of the nest a little and I learn how to post photos!!
