candling duck eggs

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey. I need some help here. First time trying to incubate duck eggs. I'm on day 20 and I'm not sure if my eggs are growing or what. I've read every Web page I can find but I still have concerns. If I can figure out how to post pictures I will. One of my eggs that I could see movement I yesterday now has no movement and has a thick dark reddish "vein" across the fat end of the egg. Another egg that was moving yesterday is completely dark inside and seems as if the duckling has filled the entire egg. Air sac is fairly large and seems to have grown. Do yall think that one should hatch soon? Any advice is greatly appreciated!!!!

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! As the duckling progresses through incubation the veins can and do become thicker as the duckling requires more blood and nutrients to develop. They don't always move all the time so you may just have missed it, I know I have when candling.
Here is a link you might like to check out ~http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/304863/duck-egg-candling-photo-diary
Lots of great pics to compare your eggs against. If you could post some pics in the duck section link that NorthFKChick left for you I'm sure the duck experts will be able to help you.

Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
