    After about 48 hours since the external pip, the duckling managed to break out but for about half an hour hasn't been able to get the other half of the shell off. I'm scared he can't get out and I don't know if I need to assist or just to wait it out. Does anyone have advice?

    How is he now?
    Has he managed to finish getting out yet?
