    Today is day 31, and I haven't gotten a single pip. I decided to investigate by opening one of the eggs and this is what I found. Obviously the duck started forming but something went wrong. It wasn't alive when it was opened. ?????

    hi Adri_San27, I had layer hen hatch out my indian runner ducks this summer, some were gush too and the breeder i bought ducks from believed those eggs had not been fertile so out of 6 eggs i have two beautiful ducklings. My guess that during the incubation time the others started to develop but the incubation was disrupted some how.
