    Should I be worried or is this normal. They are moving and the humidity is up. This is my first ever duck hatch and I really want to make sure I get a few to hatch

    Don't open the incubator....;)........You might have counted wrong?....You don't count the day you put them in as day one...24 hours later is day one...:).....Just keep waiting....

    Happy hatching and best wishes....

    I haven't opened the incubator, but it's a small incubator and I can candle them from the outside with out opening it and I can see them trying to internal pip. They are all moving. I put them in April 1 and counted April 2 as day one

    It's not a rule that they have to hatch on Day 28 or if Chicks? Day 21...If everything is going good they hatch when ready...:)

    Ya I know, I think I am just a bit nervous. They are all moving which I think is a good sign
