    Hi everyone.

    I'd like some advice please.

    This is my first time incubating duck eggs.

    I'm incubating Indian runner eggs and last night one of the ducklings in the egg piped the internal membrane and was chirping and moving around in the egg. This started at roughly 8.30pm and carried on until I went to bed at 10pm. However, today, there has been no movement and no chirping what so ever. Is this long period of silence normal?

    Any advice would be very much appreciated .

    Thank you
