    So being my first time hatching ducks, I have a twin egg... they're 5 days over due but still moving but slowly..Do I just keep watching for a few days? Or do they not usually survive?

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    It's pretty rare for twin eggs to even make it to hatch day. And by 5 days past? I'm shocked they aren't dead yet. I'd say they probably didn't develop right, and most likely aren't going to hatch.
