    It doesn't appear to have a duckling growing inside, so no it wouldn't hatch. How many eggs do you have? What type of incubator? What is the temp and humidity in your incubator? We're these your eggs, or shipped eggs?

    It's really hard to see from the picture, but i think I do see veins in the first if you look really hard so I think it still may hatch. :)

    No veining = no life

    If you're not secure with your candling experience, and the eggs don't stink, leave them in there for another week or so and if the egg is not almost completely filled with dark blob, toss it.
