    Cambells duck eggs in a brinsea mini, now the morning of day 29 (counted 1 one as the day after setting since I set them at night)

    12.5 hours ago we had 1 external pip, chick moved around in the egg when the light was shined on it (from outside the incubator, I didnt open it) or was talked to. This morning, there's still just that one external pip with 0 progress and it isnt moving at all. The pip it make just raised the shell - it didnt make a hole... not sure how much air it can get.

    The other 2 eggs arent moving at all, and have not pipped.

    It's day 29... Im kinda losing hope over here. Advice please?

    I put my ear to the side and there's at least 1 alive (if not all 3). I'll be more patient. This is killing me. [​IMG]
