    Is only the shell gone? Is all of the membrane still there? If so the membrane probably dried to the ducklings skin/feathers. Get some warm water on your finger (Not alot, and not too hot) and rub it on the membrane. Them put it back in the incubator for a little while, then take it back out and see if it will try to hatch out. Hope this helps! Keep me updated!
