They have picked through the egg. You can see their bill, but it looks like it's dry. What do I do?
You can try to help it, or just slightly crack the eggshell to ease it out of the egg
Thank you I'll try that.
Sometimes I take a wet warm Q-Tip and moisten the area around the pip. I have also wrapped it up in a warm, damp paper towel to add moisture. This is only after giving it every opportunity to hatch on its own. Humidity I use at hatching is 65
Is this normal with duck eggs?
Should I just wait and see if it can get out by itself, or should I help it? I'm new to this so I'm flying blind.
One duckling looks like it's dragging its egg shell around with it. What do i do??
It may still be attached. It should fall off. You might want to check to see if it is totally absorbed. If not I would leave it in the incubator when you take the rest out. I usually lay a clean damp paper towel down so nothing will stick to him and hopefully he will absorb everything today. It is hard knowing without a picture or knowing if there are still more ducks in your incubator hatching.
It's not a very good pic but this is the ducking. There are two more in the incubator tryin to break through.
Here is one of the other duckling that is tryin to hatch. I was wanting to know if this is okay or do I need to try to get it out myself??
