Do I hatch the duckling out myself?!

    One out of my six duck eggs going into lock down tomorrow has a really weird air sac. It's normal on top then goes down one side of the egg. I noticed acouple days ago the entire egg was filled up and I couldn't see the veins anymore but the others I could still see into. I'm scared this duckling will pip in the wrong spot so i'm wondering what I should do?? Could hatching it out myself be too risky?
