    You should be ale to here clicking/tapping like sounds. They haven't internally pipped yet if you don't hear that. It can look like they have when they push against the membrane if you aren't use to hatching and candling often. You would need to hold the egg to your ear to hear the sound.

    Waterfowl are slow hatchers, so be ready to wait well over a day if not closer to 2 days for them to fully hatch on their own. The pip and rest, externally pip and rest, turn and rest, start to zip and rest and zip more. Then they rest before starting to push the shell off.

    Oh, you posted in the geese area about the eggs. You need to move to the chicken hatching area so others don't become confused as well and give advice ment for waterfowl hatching.
