The duckling has not made any progress since I pipped for it (a couple hours ago) which isn't that surprising but it is still moving when touched. I wrapped it with a warm paper towel and peeled away some shell (not the membrane) where it's beak is sticking out. The duckling hasn't made a sound which is concerning me, it seems it used all it's energy trying to pip when it had no chance because it was pipping at the ground.
When I shine a flashlight into the pip hole, I can see yellow yolk with veins sitting on top of it's head, just above the two breathing holes on it's beak. It seems like it's making an effort to get out with no real change.
Should I do something like this all the way around the shell without breaking the membrane? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlzBNH_LNG8
It also seems that there are a lot of veins everywhere except where the beak is poking out
