    I don't know anything about hatching, but I can tell you people here are going to need more info before answering your question.

    1. What day is the egg on?
    2. What is your humidity?
    3. what is you temp?
    4. why do you think the egg needs help?

    Helping a duckling out is tricky, and can do more harm than good, even to the point of being fatal. Don't do anything until you get some answers from people here.

    Don't do that. Get that humidity built up and then sit on those hands..........I know it's so hard to resist, but those chicks will come out on their own. Tampering with the eggs will only cause problems, or even the death of the little ducklings.....
