    If I were you I’d leave her alone.
    The yolk should be absorbed within 12 hours or so.
    If you try to help you could end up making matters worse.

    Have you opened the incubator?
    If you have, spray the duckling with luke warm water to keep it moist.

    Did you open that egg? That's it's yolk and not absorbed..Put in on some paper towel in a margarine container in the incubator.

    This may work, but prognosis for survival is 'iffy'. Duckling hatched too early.
