I'm posting this new thread to hopefully get your opinions on what went wrong during the hatching process. This egg has been peeping and rocking since Monday, gradually slowing down. It never was able to pip on it's own. Just now I opened it up. It has gone to ducky heaven. What I saw was this... It looks like I put the duck in a ziplock baggie and then sucked ALL the air out. (or put it in a Space bag or Kryovac). Other than that it's moist in places. It's beak is exposed and not in any membrane. However looking directly above the beak I can see that where it would have pipping, the shell isn't even compromised. In fact I'm not really sure how it was able to reach the shell at all. Is this a humidity issue? I mean that seems obvious to me, but maybe there's another reason out there. My humidity has been consistently at 55-60 with the exception of a week ago when I had issues on one day keeping it up and it dropped to 40-45. When I noticed I bumped it back up and was able to add sponges and finally it leveled out back at 55-60. At lock down I bumped it up to 60-65. Any advice or comments are appreciated! Thanks.
