    Lol I’m originally from Chicago! Very yankee haha. I’m getting a little worried the duckling had made no progress so I took it out to look and is peeping and moving his beak but can’t seem to make any progress- so I peeled off some hard shell carefully to give him more room to work but is it possible it’s just stuck?!

    Yes it's possible but go shopping again.
    He still has plenty of time.

    The more you mess with it the better the chances he will get stuck.

    Okay y’all, I decided to go to my bfs and leave the nanny cam on (my step mom agreed if we saw anything weird she’d go over as a 911 duck assist lol) so the duckling in question was peeping and shaking and the guy next to him literally popped externally yesterday. Tiniest little pup and this morning on the nanny cam it appears he has hatched! I can’t see the other side where they crawl and rest but I see the broken shell and the tiny struggler still inside. Should I step in? I just feel like something isn’t right but I don’t wanna hurt him. Sorry if this is all normal I’m just learning and really love these dang ducks.
