Day 29- should I assist?

Hi, I was just wanting a little bit of advice. I’m on day 29 of trying to hatch shipped Indian runner ducks. I candled last night to see if anything was going on and one of the ducks had pipped internally. It’s now 14 hours later and he still hasn’t externally pipped. The issue is that I don’t know when he initially pipped and I read that they only have enough oxygen for around 24 hours. I can hear him chirping and pecking at the shell but I’m a bit worried he might be stuck. My research has said to avoid helping but as this is the first time I’ve attempted to hatch eggs, I do feel a bit restless and worried that he’ll run out of air. Any advice would be greatly appreciated 🙂
