    What should I do? I mean,there's probably nothing I can do....but these mallard eggs aren't due to hatch until June 2nd!I candled tonight and it sure seems like a ducklings bill is IN the air cell!Is this bad??Should I stop turning them all? Put 'em on early lockdown?? Help![​IMG]

    Sorry,I don't generally do this but...anyone? Should I lock down now? Raise humidity? It's about 60 % with both vent holes open.It's an LG Still air....

    if it has internally pipped, theres nothing you can do but go into lockdown and wait...you're temp. may have been too high, thats all...
