Hi - Does anyone know how long an egg can last if the broody no longer will sit on them? My Pekin duck has been sitting for over 2 wks on her nest. I candled all 12 and all 12 were forming. We had a storm come in a couple of days ago, and even though she is in the nest box inside the chicken house, she left her nest with the other 4 ducks and has not gone back to her eggs. Its been 2 days now. I pulled two and cracked them open to see if they were bad or whatever. Both were developing little ducks, one even had its feathers already. Neither showed signs of life and were very cold. Theres 8 eggs left in the nest. If these were put into an incubator or under one of my broody hens (2 are sitting on one nest) is it too late for these duck eggs to survive now? Thanks for any info.
