    No movement at all that i can see today. Do i just leave the egg now as the other two look like they might be pipping? Thank you

    Yes, leave them now..Ducklings really rest before they hatch out....It takes hours...;).....

    Thank you - there is no movement at all from him. I wonder if he has died or could it be possible that he is asleep? Seems unlikely that there is no movement at all visible?
