    Leave it alone, they can take 24-48 hours to hatch after pipping.

    Wait. I have had ducks like that that have taken 24 hrs to get out. Did the others get out alright? Or is this the first to pip? Anytime i have "helped" before waiting a day, ive killed them. Its hard to be patient when you think thyre dying.

    Is it normal for its beak to hang out ?

    Yes, it is normal for the bill to poke out of the egg.

    It probably tore a vein, it should be okay though.
