    Okay,
    So I have posted on here a few times regarding my duckies.

    I am wondering, I have had one hatching, since about 24 hours ago, you can see its beak, and one of its feet, but its been like this for almost 12 hours..
    Its trying to get out, but hasnt been making any progress at all.

    Also, one of my other eggs, was pipped, and was peeping for a bit, and shook so much it flipped itself over ( pip on bottom) and now it hasnt made any noise... no shaking.. no progress.

    How much longer do you guys think these little guys will take?

    I've had ducklings take 24hours. They tend to be harder to hatch than chickens for me at least.

    well his beak has been sticking out and one of his feet for over 24 hours... are his feet supposed to be by his beak?
    Also the membrane stuff is like brown, is it supposed to be

    Brown? probably drying up? Does he seem to be moving frequently and still trying or does he look like he's giving up? Do you see any red blood?
