do duck eggs take longer to zip than chicken eggs or are my ducks in trouble? i have one that pipped around 36 hours ago that has only zipped about half way around the egg and the other that pipped about 20 hours ago has only zipped about 1/4th of the way around.

my first hatch one pipped on a Monday and didnt hatch til late afternoon on Wednesday. They do take awhile. I think its cause duck shells are harder than chicken shells.
