    Hi i have 5 duck eggs that were doing absolutely great at 25 days, put them into lock down on day 25...

    Its now day 29-30 looking through eggs with a torche, 3 haveno movement, however still have perfect air sacs but no internal pip at all.
    The other two -
    One you can see his beak hitting the egg, however the air sac does not look like a air sac anymore, but can defiantly see its beak hitting the egg, and coming back and forth.
    The other you can see its beak in the air sac moving around... im panicking do i make a hole for the one whos beak i can see tapping?? Why are they so late, im scared their trapped in the egg and cant break out, especially the one whos air sac looks different now!! Help???? My first time hatching.. there 100% pekin ducks

    G’Day from down under bradganino [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sorry, I have no experience with ducks but hope that the folks on the Forums redsoxs has given you links to are able to assist…Good Luck!

    I also hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
