    I had a duckling pip on the wrong end yesterday. Before noon (eastern time). When I saw it, it had broke through all the way but had a tiny bit of red goo from small slit it made. I have slowly tried helping every so often. Just recently removing a lot of the outer shell and placing in a dish back in incubator. But it doesn't seem to be making any progress on absorbing the bloody mucous-y stuff, not sure about yolk sac, as I haven't seen it yet. I think this is common with when they pip on the wrong end, right? Wrong? Advice? Tips?
    Thank you!
