Whats the humidity? There is a chance the humidity is too low. I can't say for sure whats right or wrong because I have only hatched one duck.

This incubator does not have a humidity reading :(

But I always had water in the center holder, and during these last days I filled it up completely(following the instructions that brinsea provided)

EDIT:

The green egg keeps poking a single hole, im not seeing zipping, should I be concerned or...

@brahmabreeder everything seems ok now :)



3 Ducks have hatched, however, 1 seems to not like to walk around(he almost hops) and I cannot see anything wrong with his legs..

they are under a heat lamp in my makeshift brooder


4 eggs are left...I hope they survive

Is it normal for them to be pecking @ each other?

As long as they are not making each other bloody they will be fine. Turkeys are notorious at pecking eack others rumps until they bleed to death or the just start pulling stuff out.
