    Im on day 7 (well the eggs went in to the incubator last weds evening so im counting on full days) hatching 6 appleyard and 6 runner duck eggs. Candled them today - one is defintely dead (there are bits of white germ which looks like off milk), 7 have nice veins in them but nothing much seems to have happened in the other eggs. My question is how long so i leave these eggs if nothing seems to be happening? or should i just leave them and see what happens?

    thanks
