The hole is slightly bigger & we're seeing lots of flashes of beak!! The other eggs aren't doing anything though

He's giving the occasional faint cheep and biting around the hole!! Like he's starting to zip!!! big_smile.png

He's been working away at the inner membrane,there's a strip leading away from the hole in the shell where the shell looks thinner and that's where he's biting towards!! It's exactly where the zip should be!! smile.png

No movement from the other eggs though hmm.png we may have to go in there later, at least one of them had internally pipped last night.

How will I know if it's getting shrink wrapped? & should we assist the other eggs? They're way overdue now

Yay! So, start you click on that one. 24-36 hours from now if there's no progression then you may want to consider assisting.

If the duckling appears to have started to unzip then there's no need to intervene unless the unzip hasn't progressed at all in 4 hrs.
