    I've got duck eggs that are about to end day 29. One has been pipped for 48 hours, but has zipped about 1/4 of the egg overnight. Not seeing anything from that egg at the moment, wondering if now is the time to step in, but worried about hurting the other three pipped eggs, then again only one of those is cheeping at this point.
