    So my pekin duck went broody and was sitting on a batch of about 15 eggs. Throughout the laying period, she kicked some out and we threw some out because of candling showing no life. We are now at day 29 and the eggs have yet to hatch. Some eggs have dark spots all over them, while some are completely white. I attached photos. Are these eggs still good? [​IMG]

    Do they reply when you cheep to them? That's one of the methods I use to see if a chick is still alive in the egg. If they don't reply, I carefully open them up from the top so I can be sure they are dead. If they aren't, the opening lets them get some fresh air and allows me to keep a closer eye on them to see if they need help hatching.
