Well after our chicks hatched in the bator with 2 duck eggs that weren't due for another week, I had pretty much written them off, since I heard bacteria from the hatch can invade the eggs. Also the woman I got these from has never had a duck hatch they are all DIS.

I just went to turn them and one is pipped and zipped 1/3 of the way!!!!! I am rushing to raise the humidity since I didn't think they were due until next Wednesday. He is singing and pecking away in there. I am so excited, but a bit nervous about how early he is.

Any advice on whether I should stop turning the other egg?

OKay, he's out and there's no visible blood, but the umb cord seems to be attached and there is somewhat yolky membrane all over his back. He's very strong and active, seems to be annoyed by the stuff. Is that normal? Should I wait and bathe it off later?
