    its been over 24 hours since the first pip and it hasnt moved... i had a bit of trouble withhumidity and im afraid its stuck... if i do need to help, how much longer should i wait till i do so to ensure that ta gosling is ready to be out of the shell

    There not like chickens, it can take up to 3 days to hatch, be patient! [​IMG]

    Just keep watch of your humidity and wait. They are very slow hatchers, and can look close to death after they are out. they will come around in time.

    I'm really hoping things go well for you. [​IMG] This is the hard part for them and you. Hang in there.
