    I have 2 eggs that are on day 26 today. They are Indian Runner Ducks. Last night sometime they broke their shell and it looked like they were going to try to hatch. Today there is only a little more progress. How long should I wait before I help? Or do I just need to leave it alone and be patient?

    Ducks incubate for 28 days.
    It can take 2-3 days to hatch after they pip.
    If you can still hear them I'd leave them be.
    They take a long time to adapt to breathing and absorb the yolk.
