    Need advice! Our two duck eggs started piping this afternoon earlier than we expected. This is our first hatch and I'm worried about the membranes drying out. Does this look ok? Or do I need to do something quick? [​IMG][​IMG][/IMG]

    Only one survived thanks to advice and help I received from people on the Backyard Chickens of Mississippi Facebook Group. [​IMG]

    Congrats on your hatchling. I'm glad someone was able to help you. I don't know to much about helping them out of the shell.
