My first incubation ever! From 24 eggs set on 10th November, at least 22 is alive with many internal pips, one is unzipping and one has just hatched! This little guy hatched at 26 days 9 hours into incubation, a bit early but seems healthy, energetic, with no malformation. If it's a she I'll be keeping her, otherwise I'll give him away, will vent sex after 24 hours. (I intend to keep the first three healthy females that hatch)

Um... just a quick question folks. This duckling, he/she seems to have 2 vents. I'm assuming one of them is the belly button, right? and the vent should be the one closer to the tail, is that right?

The 'belly button' is just the same size as the 'vent'.

There is nothing hanging and no yolk, there's just another vent-like bump thing on the stomach. I assume that'd fade in a few days.
