Thank you. Im hoping it goes much smoother from here on out. I will post updates as new things happen. Duck 2 is still working the shell, about a half inch left on one side. I feel like a couple good pushes might just get it there. The upside down egg is just chillin. I dont think it wants to actually hatch yet, it may have just needed the air so it broke that hole open. It doesnt seem to be struggling or anything. I can see its beak, its just breathing and sitting there, little movements here and there, but not anything significant enough to break the shell.I'm so sorry you lost the 2. Hopefully, the 5 will be healthy little ones and help ease the pain.
Maybe you need some extra support now that you have one coming from the wrong end.
so happy for you that the first little one is doing so well.
You have @Pyxis article on helping just use your gut on when to help.
And please update often.
