    1. Crack them open, look for a white bullseye on the yolk

    2. Throw them in the bator, after a few day just candle and look for an embryo....

    3. Send them to me to hatch them for you...haha

    Well then you probably dont have a drake, the only reason I say this is because if you are getting eggs, yoor drake(if you had one) would have his tail curl by now....
