    Hi!

    I've never hatched duck eggs before, and am hoping for some advice from peeps on BYC!

    I ordered Khaki Campbell eggs. Ten of the twelve eggs arrived uncracked. I let them rest a few hours to warm to room temperature, then set them in the incubator last week.

    I candled two nights ago (day 5), and again tonight (day 7). I can't seem to see any development!

    With chicken eggs I'm used to seeing lots of veins by day four or five. How long should it take for these ducks? I can see air sacs and yolks, but nothing else.

    Thank you!

    Is this better, or worse?
