    So I candled my pekin duck eggs and it's day 7, I can't see any sign of veins. All I see is the yolk but doesn't look like anything is growing. I'm new to hatching and candling, I'm assuming these eggs are bad...but I hate to give up on them-is there a chance that they could develop?

    By day 7 you should see veins. I would say nothing's going to start, but hang to them for 2 or 3 more days just to be sure.
