hi my name is jill, im new here and came across this website after looking on google for help with hatching. i've been an owner of indian runners since i was a kid. heres my hatching question:
this spring i started out with 4 eggs in the incubator (indian runner ducks), two ended up being infertile, they never developed. and two did, of those two eggs one died on the 20th day (rotten smell), and now today is the end of day 33. i know it takes 28 to 33 days for duck eggs to hatch. but i am worried its not going to hatch, i know i can always try again. but i was wondering, the egg that died stank up the incubator so i could immediatly tell one was dead. so if the one egg i have is still not smelly at day 33 and i can barely see anything but darkness besides a small area when i candled days ago. is this duckling likely alive if it doesnt smell rotten??
ive havent seen movement in a while its hard to tell.
thanks for you input.
