    I had left my pekin duck in the bator and it came day 28 nothing happened, at day 30 I thought it must be dead so I opened up the egg as I do to see what had gone wrong I took off the top end of the shell and could see no movment at all so I carried on and opend the top half, then the ducklings top half body came out and it wasn't dead, I now have it in the bator with the top of its shell off it has heaps of yolk around it tho, should I just leave it and see what happens? im sad as I only had the one egg make it

    I had a lot of mine die too... Don't worry eventually you get a good healthy one. Trust me I just started hatching last year and hatch rate is like 5%. But I'm getting better. Don't lose hope.
