    I have a concern. I have a muscovy duck that just hatched 11 babies fine over the course of the last 2 days. The last one hatched over 24 hrs ago. She still had 2 eggs and I figured they were bad but when I checked last night one had a crack in the shell so I put it back. I just went and checked and there was no progress so I took it out and listened and heard nothing so I pulled off part of the shell and all of a sudden it started chirping and pecking inside but not where I had pulled off the shell. I tried to put it back under her just how I found it but I'm not sure if he is stuck or not. There is no hole through the membrane. Any advice?

    Hi and welcome to BYC. I'd suggest posting your question in the "duck" forum for expert advice from the duck peeps.

    Best wishes
