Hi all! I need some quick help with my 2 duck eggs that I am incubating. I've realized through researching here that our humidity levels weren't as high as they should have been and our temperature was a little low (98-99) at the start for a still-air incubator (we've made a home-made bator with styrofoam and water pans). My ducklings were due to hatch in on day 28 (I've confirmed this with the supplier-they are Indian Runner crosses) but it is now day 34. Following instructions for checking to see if they were alive, I made a puncture in the air cell- the membrane was dry but they chick was alive! The other chick started peeping today but when I candled it hadn't punctured the air cell. I followed instrutions for assisting but am not sure what I am looking at. There are small blood vessels so I haven't pierced the membrane at all I can see what looks like an eye but cannot located the beak. There is yellowish fluid that I assume in the yolk but it is up near the aircell end which I'm thinking tells me he is not positioned correctly. He isn't peeping and is moving less than the other duckling. I'm scared to go further but I want him to make it! And to know what to do with the other egg. The other egg has bigger blood vessels from what I can see. Also cannot see a head from the hole I made. The eggs seem VERY hard, the duck eggs we have used for eating seem unusually hard-shelled as well (compared to chicken especially). Any help would be MUCH appreciated. I really want to help these chicks! I will try to upload pics. Thanks!
