    It's day 26 as of today it's nerve wracking. I hear no peeps yet but I put one of the eggs to my ear and hear tapping does that mean it's almost time?. Also I put them on lock down is it OK to do it on day 26?. I have been spraying the eggs as well. The humidity is up too and I stopped the egg turning today. Am I doing the right thing??.

    Omg!! So I came home after work yesterday and saw beginning signs of ducklings ready to hatch. The eggs are cracked in one part of the egg where the air sac is . How long does it take for the ducklings to fully hatch after this?. It's day 27 today.
