Found it this evening just outside the duck's nest. Very cracked, about 1/3 of the shell coming off the membrane, and some blood. It's in the incubator for now, shuold it survive, sounds like a chick, vs. a duck too - not that there's a lot of difference.

I've looked through several threads, taping this up doesn't seem to be an option - there's a leg sticking out.

Sounds like it is in process of zipping and should be out of the egg shortly after it warms up. Good luck.

Did fine, and we've gotten it into a nest with a chicken - who has five ducklings!
