    It can easily take 24-36 hours from external pip to hatch. The ducklings in my hatch took an average of 31 hours to hatch after pipping.

    Okay, I am getting concerned because one of the hatching ducks has their head bent under itself and its wing under the egg turner and it has been like that for 4 hours or so. Is that alright? Is there something I can do to help or do I just wait?????

    Do you still have the turner in the incubator? That is supposed to come out appx 3 days before they are due to hatch?
