    Today is day 30 and I panicked and after much reading here I decided to see if I could help with the hatch. Of the 12 duck eggs that I set, only one was fertile so I'm really hoping for this little one! When I candled, the egg was too full and too dark to see anything. I didn't think that there was movement. When I peeled back some egg, I could see that the baby was alive and there are still tiny veins in the membrane. What have I done now? I've moistened the membrane abd put the egg back in the incubator but will the baby be ok with a hole in its shell? Is there anything else that I should do?

    I think this is a duplicate thread. There are responses on the other thread.
