Hey I had a question. I found a wild duck egg a few weeks back and today is day 22 of incubation and it was very much alive and moving. Unfortunately this morning, unbeknownst to me, the incubator dropped from it's shelf and the egg rolled out. It couldn't have been there more than a few hours but when I touched it it was pretty cool and when I candled it the air sack took up much more of the egg and I couldn't see any activity save for one of the vessels was still pumping. The egg did not crack (somehow), but do you guys think it's dead? I put it back in the incubator (more securely) and thought id wait it out and see. It's such a disappointment because I've been so diligent with caring for this little thing and I was excited to see it hatch. Any advice? Thanks

Yeah, thank you for your reply. I agree it's odd and I've been checking all day and it's squirming and I can see a vein still pumping so it seems very much alive. I'm going to see where this goes! Thanks again!
