    The darkness inside this egg is very watery

    Truthfully I'm not sure. We could be up to day 14. She's been laying an egg a day for 14 days til last night, she ended up laying 2. I didn't mark them everyday. This is my first time to have laying ducks. I'm pretty sure I seen a heartbeat inside the first egg tho. The second egg however, the dark area is super runny.

    Are you sure she is laying the new eggs? If she is sitting then she should stop laying.

    Duck eggs take longer then chicken eggs to hatch I think it takes like 26 days. If you have new eggs every day then they are going to hatch on different days.

    28-30 days for ducks unless Muscovy then it's 35-37 days.
