    Hey y'all! I'm new to the forum, I have 9 khahi Campbell duck eggs that were due to hatch 2 day ago. Its now day 30 and they still have not hatched. I candled them and all are in the sac and moving except for one. Should I leave them alone or should I do an emergency c-section? Humidity level and temp are good but they are just taking their time

    Let them be, sounds like they're running late. What is your temperature and what type of incubator do you have? Still air or forced?

    Its a still air incubator. The temp is set at 99 degrees

    That temp is actually two and half degrees low. For still air you need it to be 101.5 degrees measured at the top of the eggs. That's why they're late.
