    I have 4 Pekin Duck eggs on day 24 in the incubator and they have all internally pipped and I can hear pecking but there are no cracks on the shells. Should I help them? It has been 8 1/2 hours since I first saw an internal pip. I also expected them to come on day 28 so I did not go into " lockdown" until yesterday. Will they be ok?
