Yes, he was out in 10 minutes flat.  He's still going strong.  But the others didn't make it.  

 

Yesterday when he was out of his shell, and walking around, he was like a bull in a china shop and rolled the other eggs.  I reset them and all seemed ok, but he did it again when I was out of the room.  Apparently it was long enough that the little guys' drowned.  One had pipped the membrane, so I'm not sure what happened to that one, but this morning I went to candle them (day 31 today) and found no movement whatsoever.  I went ahead and started slowly opening eggs, and found them all tucked up, sleeping for forever.

 

I am sad.  Jr. is lonely now, so of course we have to baby him till we can get more eggs or new ducklings.
