I just can't sleep, this is my first experience with wood duck eggs. I started out with 5, three were unfertilized, one died due to incubator malfunction and now just ONE, and it has internally piped, Thank God. But now, I'm so anxious I can't sleep. I know staying awake isn't going to make the baby hatch any quicker or any smoother I'm just so on edge. This is my only wood duck and probably the only chance I'm going to get with hatching one for a long time. I just can't stand the thoughts of anything going wrong. How long after internal pip can I expect the little sucker to externally pip anyway? He pipped internally earlier today. Its so late and I know I should be asleep but...sigh...I just want this to go smooth. I don't care if I get just one female or one male, just a wood duck in the flesh and feather would make me sooo happy. Any advice would be appreciated...though I am probably the only duck nut still awake at 1 in the morning.
