This morning we were very excited to see that our of our eggs have a little hole in them. When the ducklings are ready to hatch they will make a little hole which is called pipping. Once the ducklings have pipped it can take between 12-18 hours for them to hatch out fully.
Hatching is very difficult and the ducklings get quite sleepy. They use a special hard part on the end of their beak called their 'Egg tooth' to crack away at the shell. But they have to take lots of naps in-between all the hard work.
