    I have three Cayuga eggs in my incubator, I have one that started hatching yesterday and a dime sized hole on it. The duckling still hasn't hatched yet I can see it moving around and it's bill sticking out but it hasn't come out yet. It's moving like crazy and peeping too. The air sack on it was big and went down the side to the bottom. It looking like it's filling out the entire inside of the egg. Not sure if I should help it out not since its been over 24 hours or wait. Should I assist it in hatching? I'd hate to lose it if I do or don't.

    Estimated hatch / lockdown was supposed to start tomorrow 11/14.
