    Hi and welcome to BYC - unfortunately, i have no experience with ducks or incubation so I'm not exactly a wealth of info [​IMG] but if you post your question in the "duck" forum, i am sure that the duck experts will be able to advise.

    Best of luck

    Hi :welcome

    Ducks can take an age to hatch so yours are not too over due yet. I see you have posted in the incubating section so I'm sure you will get lots of help there.

    Good luck :fl

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] I hope those ducklings have made some progress by now! In my experience with hatching I found the little ones are going to do what they feel like doing and when they feel like doing it. I've had chicken eggs hatch up to 4 days late and a day or 2 early… and everything in-between. Duck eggs starting to hatch 2 days before I expected to see signs of life too. It's a wonderful, but often nerve wrecking experience, hatching eggs. I hope your hatch will be successful for you!
