    It is still peeping and I can see movement, but it has been maybe 36 hours, nothing new I can see, just an air hole . Should I do anything? This is a duckling. Humidity is at 70% (ducks need that I read). But it is in the incubator . Should I move it to the other incubator for a hatcher? I read you should get temp down to 98-99 for hatching and the duck one runs up to 102 Still air. I have another one internally pipped and moving . should I move it too?

    Never mind. I did another search and read about maybe helping to halfway and if the membrance was white. . I strted to check the egg and it had zipped on the other side! I just took twizzers and picked off a few pieces and a foot came through! Whithin a minute , he come popping out by itself! I now have [​IMG]a mini- baby Overberg from Holderreads stock!
