    so i attempted to incubate eggs for the first time. i had 8 muscovy eggs. all fully developed, by lockdown only 3 were moving. it's now day 39 (it takes 35 das for scovies) and nothing has happend [​IMG] i upped the humidity to 80% hoping it would help. i just about gave up as i hadn't seen any more movement in a day or two. well today i noticed one of them moving again so it's obviously still alive but it's not pipping. so what's going on with this little survivor? does he still have a chance at hatching? i keep expecting it to either pip or stop moving but it's not pipping and continues to wobble, i don't get it [​IMG] anyone have any thoughts?

    My suggestion would be to pip an air hole.
