Hatching Question.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello!
So, a few days ago I noticed one of the eggs in my incubator moving a bit. It wasn't much but it was noticeably rocking. This has been going on for three days now.
I know that ducklings need to adjust themselves in the egg before hatching but is it normal to take a few days to do so? I've never had any ducks take three days to pip so I'm a bit worried about whether it's having difficulties or not.
Please let me know if you have any ideas.
Thank you!

Then this is totally normal. I've had eggs moving in my hands at lock down that didn't hatch till 29.
