    [​IMG]A mother duck was struck and killed by a car the night before last. The eggs were out for about 24-28 hours and it got pretty cold over night here in Michigan. I have brought the eggs in till I reach a rescue to take them. I don't know how old the eggs are or any of that. I tried candling and I'm not sure if they survived. I have them on a heating pad on a damp towel with a heating pad on top of the bowl as well I'm keeping them at 99 degrees. If i post a picture of the egg with the light would anyone be able to help me determine if they are alive. Is it even possibly being outside all night? Also should I take them off the damp towe? I have been turning them every 6 hours. Thank you so much! I just want to save them if possible

    it is possible, keep turning them, someone may be able to see something if you did post a pic.

    wrong end sorry you have to shine the light on the side of the air cell, someone else might see something from that , but I can't see much else, did you find a rehabilitator?
