    Ok my duck eggs, particularly 1, has been shaking for 3 or 4 days. I am curently on day 29-30. the temp stays at around 98-99 and the humidity is at 75%, as high as I can get it. The shaking was quite alot yesterday but now seems to be alot less. No pip yet. Does this mean something and should I do anything to help it out?

    I just sent your PM - Go for it - you have nothing to loose. (Unless you have muscovies - they take longer so wait a day or two)

    If it hasnt pipped on its own, I would leave it, it probably is not ready.

    If they didn't pip internally and you're on day 29-30 then your chances of having them hatch themselves successfully are dwindling. You can either help them out and risk death or not help them out and risk death.

    What have you got to loose?
