Hello!
we are on day 27 with this mallard duck egg. Is this an internal pip? It looks like the air cell is sort of bulging…. Not sure if this is actually the internal pip? It was not like this yesterday. Egg was locked down on day 25. Thanks for your help!

Not quite but getting close. They create that shadow below the air cell for a few days before pipping into it. You'll see a very obvious beak shaped shadow once it has internally pipped and you should hear it, though some are pretty quiet.

Exciting!
