I am the WORST "searcher" ...never know what to enter, so I couldn't find the answer to this..... I have a duck who has been pipping for almost 12 hours, but he is coming rear end out first. I swear that I've always seen them come out beak first.....???? OR, I am suffering from a SEVERE case of Mental Pause. I know the posts say, "don't help, don't help", but this little one is peeping and rocking and rolling and just doesn't seem to have any way to break the egg without a beak. I have no idea how he got this far. Do I help or not? I don't want him to die because I ignored him. Also..at what age do you switch from crumbles to other food?
