First time hatching ducks, but I’ve hatched a few rounds of chicks before. This one had been struggling, shaking and just not right. Is it unabsrobed yolk?

Omg that beak! How are ducks so cute?

I dont know the answer. Is he still trying to get out or has he passed?

How is the rest of your clutch?

Keep him separate in a little cup and hope it absorbs? I dont know past that but that's what I've heard for unabsorbed yolk.

I can’t turn the air off I’m the incubator, but the other two ducklings are already out and in their own place. I’d be worried to move this one out because it’s not as warm, should he be okay because he’s alone in the bator(aside from unhatched eggs)?

His little wing is tremmoring, but he’s trying to move his head. Also, I noticed the air sack in the egg isn’t open, but this baby pipped almost three days ago. Thank you for the help!
