    SO IT APPEARS I HAVE 1 MORE EGG THAT HAS PIPPED, IT PIPPED INTERNALLY SUNDAY, NO EXTERNAL PIP AS OF TODAY. 3 DUCKLINGS HATCHED. THE OTHER 12 EGGS HAVE NOT PIPPED. I ORDERED THE EGGS FROM STROMBERGS. I CANDLED THEM AND THEY APPEARED ALL THE SAME. IS THIS BAD THAT THEY HAVENT PIPPED YET?

    Give them more time. Many things can affect how long it takes. Some may be a few days late. Its possible they quit but also possible theyre just late.
