    ps guys will humidity not affect a duckling? the humidity is very high because one of the ducklings isnt out of the shell yet but one is, so will the one thats out of the shell be ok?

    Humidity ALWAYS goes up when an egg starts zipping. They should be fine.

    Quote:maybe that bumpy bit is there to help them poke through the egg? did your ducklings have little bumps on the end of their beak?
