    I'm no expert, but it looks like you'll have little ones soon! [​IMG]

    Looks like you have your first pip. Now the fun of waiting begins. With ducks it could be anywhere from a few hours to 48 ish before they progress to the zip so hang in there! If you are two days early after the hatch you can double check the accuracy of your thermometers, a slightly elevated temp will cause early hatchers. My bator runs warm usually and my hatches usually start 2 days early as well.
