Hi! I am hatching 15 mallard duck eggs in an incubator, and on day 25 I could feel and see movement in the eggs when I rotated them, yesterday (day 26) I stopped rotating them and I haven't opened the incubator, I haven't seen any of them moving at all, but I haven't watched them for very long. I don't think any of them have internally pipped yet, and I'm a little worried. are they going to hatch late? are the ok? i'm probably just being paranoid but any advice would be super helpful!!
Duck eggs day 27?

The waiting game is the absolute hardest thing!!! Leaving them alone is super hard. In September we incubated 7 eggs and out of the 7, 4 hatched out. 2 never pipped and one had pipped but I guess died in the process. I never saw movement in them either until one day I was washing dishes and I heard peeping! Good luck!
