    I am trying to hatch Cayuga ducks and I am on day 29 one of my 3 eggs has cracked the shell about 48 hours ago and the other have no cracks. First question is the crack egg going to make it. I can hear it chirping and moving. Second question are the other two eggs going to hatch or how long should I give them

    I have not hatched duck eggs, only chicken. I believe they should have been taken out of the turner. There is a risk of babies getting stuck in it. Check the hatching 101 article. I've read it several times and have learned a lot by doing that. Good luck!

    Few days before they are about to hatch, I put my eggs laying on the side and don't turn them anymore.

    You should probably do the same.

    Yep! Out of the turner and on the side is how I've always been told. On the other two eggs, candle them and look for internal pips or development. That's the only way to judge their likelyhood of hatching.

    Okay I could wait no more so I help duck out of egg. It was stuck in position and couldn't turn. Now the doc is out and I'm wondering how long I should leave it in incubator cuz shell is still stuck to its backside[​IMG]
