    I have 6 mallard duck eggs... 2 are a day or two behind...the other 4..they all have movement inside but only one seems to be really trying to break into the air sac. This is my first time hatching eggs.. I increased the himidity and took the last vent plug out a couple days ago... And this morning I spritzed them with warm water. This hatching part is putting me on the edge of my seat...anxious and worried at the same time... Any pointers are they ok?

    Just be patient. Do you still see rocking? Im sure they will hatch just fine. Ducks take around 28 days so if some of yours are behind, give it a few more days before you panick.
