I just joined in order to ask this question. For all of those that have some experience with Duck eggs and incubation... if there is an embryo growing, but I cannot see any visible veins that means it is dead, correct?
I am not sure. I noticed it two days ago, left it and candled it again. The embryo is bigger and I can see the 'eye spot' but cannot see a single vein. They are white duck eggs, so I do not think that is my problem.
I hate to ask, but should I toss them? This is for a Kindergarten class to teach life science and if I need to replace the egg with another one, please let me know!
(Don't worry, we already have homes lined up for the ducklings :) Some of the people around her are nearly jumping for the chance to keep one or two as pets. There are only 16 eggs and I know not all will develop, but it is three eggs that have this problem.)
I have been hand turning it 5 times a day, minimum of 3 as per the instructions from Metzer's farm. And, misting them to keep humidity up with warm water. Am I doing something wrong?
