    The eggs are wiggling around but no pip! Should I start worrying?

    What kind of ducks are they? My woodies took like 32 days. Thought they were never going to hatch.

    Muscovys take longer too . If yuor temp was a little low that would make the incubation period a little longer . If they are wiggling they should be pipping soon . Are they making any noise ?

    Cayuga's. So, I know it takes 28 days. They've internally pipped which is good. My temp and humidity were spot on as far as I can tell. There's no noise except for the occasional *thud* of an egg hitting the side of the incubator.

    just be patient ducks can vary unlike chickens which is mostly 21 days no exeptions... ducks are more like people, everyone is different
