Good luck to everyone! Im out My duck pipped about 3:30 yesterday. My husband text me while I was a work so I didn't find out till later on in the evening. He said everything looked good humidity and temp wise. Said it was making noise! And then the chicken egg pipped wrong end about 5 he said. Said it was still peeping and working on the pip when he went to bed they were making noise. When I got home around midnight there wasn't any noise I figured they were resting. My husband got up at 6 for work still no noise I got up at 7 with the babies no noise. So my SIL came over about an hour ago. She's hatched dozens of hundreds and is what you would call a meddler I guess. I didn't want to open it but was worried. She took a look at the duck and he had pipped but died as the chicken had pipped wrong side and died without absorbing yolk. Duck didn't seem to have much if any yolk. Not sure what happened or why. My 8 year old is pretty upset and wants to try again but I think we will wait a little bit. Plus my chickens aren't laying at the moment anyways and don't want to have any shipped until we start getting better. Looking at a new bator in the coming up months so maybe things will go better next time! Thanks for everyone's help! Hope everyone has great luck!

Awe so sad! better luck next time! I think one of mine is having a hard time or has lost its battle as well. I'm thinking of working on a home made bator myself..
