    My duck eggs cracked their eggs slightly over 12 hrs ago but nothing more has happened, how do I know if I should help?

    Ducks take a long time to hatch. There's no reason to worry yet.

    They can take 24 to 48 hours to start zipping from the time they pip, so there's no cause for alarm yet :)

    I've had 5 hatch so far! But I'm at work so that could have increased! I had 2 hatch before I left this morning and the rest have hatched while I've been at work!!! I'll post pics as soon as I get home!
