Well, I posted here about 10 days ago because the wild duck egg I had been incubating had fallen and rolled out of the incubator and the lining in the shell had partially come apart from the shell inside, however the egg itself was not damaged and the duckling was still alive. It is now day 32 and the duck is still alive and was quite active yesterday, but it's movements have slowed and today just twitches every once in a while. It still has a lot of veins and there are parts sticking up from the inner sack but nothing that looks quite like a beak but I can't be sure. Is it normal for the chicks to rest quite a bit before hatching? How will I know when it has pipped and is there any point when I should definitely help? I'm scared it's having a hard time pipping and I don't want it to suffocate. Please help!!
