So, out of curiosity, since there's nothing I could do anyway until my long workday is over and I have fought my way through Friday traffic (oh joy)...
1. What the range of time that's "normal" for it to take a gosling to unzip after pipping the egg shell? Up to 48 hrs? More?
2. What are some of the signs that something is wrong? (newbie, so I wouldn't necessarily recognize trouble/warning signs or whether all is progressing normally)
The two babies that pipped were minimum (don't know what time yesterday they pipped) 12 hrs along as of this morning before I left for work. They were still peeping, but neither had done more than peel back the soft inner layer of the shell so that there was a hole.
Figured I'd ask now, since there may not be anyone online when I get home tonight.
