First, I was NOT the one who caught the duck, moved the eggs and then let the duck get away. That person was a well intentioned but really REALLY stupid person! My problem now is, 16 eggs in the bator for two weeks and no signs of life. I have candled them but all I see is a clear spot at the blunt end and all the rest is black. They havnt changed for as long as they have been with me. interperit I floated some of them, one sank and the rest floated just a bit above the water. Is there ANY way to tell if these eggs are still alive, short of breaking one open? Floating them gave me data but I didn't know how to use it lol.
