Does this look dried out?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
first time with duck eggs. They piped early before lockdown. This one had been pipped at least 30 that I know of. I was getting nervous that its was stuck. Should I help more or let it be?

Piped for 30 hours? If that's the case then help it out. Yes the membrane looks dried. What's the humidity at now? Over 70% RH is good for hatching. 

Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it.
